Laramie Program Coordinator

I moved to Laramie in December of 2021 from Evanston.  I started to work with Foster Grandparents of the Wyoming Rockies in July of 2023.  I'm excited to be able to support seniors and to help create meaningful intergenerational relationships within these Wyoming communities.  I enjoy traveling, reading, practicing/teaching yoga and good food.

Program Director


Originally from Nebraska, I moved to Laramie in 1990. I have a BA in Child & Family Development and an MA in Curriculum & Instruction/Early Childhood Disabilities. I've worked in Early childhood Education for many years and have worked with Foster Grandparents in each program. It's wonderful being part of the Foster Grandparent Program to support seniors within our community.  I have a large family and my favorite thing is to spend time with them. I enjoy cooking, playing games, reading, having adventures in different places in the world. And I love serving our grandparents. Please stop in and say “hello”!

Sheridan Project Coordinator

I am a recent transplant to Sheridan from North Carolina and am brand new to Foster Grandparents of the Wyoming Rockies. My educational background is in Psychology, earning degrees from Western Carolina University. I have worked in private households with families for nearly a decade, filling various roles as needed. I am excited for the opportunity to stitch together meaningful relations between the older and younger generations through FGWR. I enjoy traveling, being outside, staying active, and food. In line with this, my hobbies include seeking adventures, hiking/backpacking, and baking/cooking.
