Program Director, Maryalice Snider. I’ve been with the Foster Grandparent Program since early 2013, starting as Laramie’s Project Coordinator. I became Director in September 2015 when the program came under its new sponsorship. Prior to working with the Foster Grandparent Program, I taught nutrition at UW, LCCC, and to mothers and young children. I also worked as a Registered Dietitian in various hospitals and nursing homes in SE Wyoming. Among other things, as director of FGWR I supervise the daily operations and try my best to keep the ‘I’s’ dotted and the ‘T’s’ crossed. My husband Jeff and I raised our two children Laurel and Noah in Laramie, and are now adjusting to an empty nest! I enjoy cooking, playing in the mountains, traveling and learning about new cultures. Our seniors inspire me every day. If you happen to come to our office during the school year, please say ‘hi’ and give a scratch behind the ear to Ivy.
LARAMIE PROJECT COORDINATOR
Originally from Sheridan, Wyoming, I moved to Laramie in 1999. I have a BA in Humanities and Fine Arts from the University of Wyoming, as well as a Pilates Teacher certification. I’ve spent most of my career as an Office Associate at the University of Wyoming, and a couple years spent remodeling houses in both Wyoming and California with my husband. I enjoy rock climbing, travelling, cooking, and spending time outdoors with my husband and our two dogs, Harold and Cricket. I am excited to serve our volunteers!
SHERIDAN PROJECT COORDINATOR
Originally from South Texas, I am a transplant to Wyoming! I have three beautiful girls, Olivia Rose, Nora Renae and Maddie May. I relocated here to marry my best friend, Tyson, who is a civil engineer. I have a long history of working with nonprofits and seniors, and it is definitely where my heart is at. When I am not working or hanging out with my kiddos you can usually find me volunteering my time. Being the Project Coordinator in Sheridan is an honor and I can’t wait to serve our grandparents, as they serve our community.
