Outside Council

"My full-time job is working in public health preparedness at the Casper-Natrona County Health Department. I started this job the day before I was elected. Prior to that, I worked in the criminal justice and social work field off and on since 2005. I have also done work as a freelance writer, and marketing and development director for local, artistic nonprofits. In my free time, I enjoy teaching my daughter, Olivia, about activism, participating in the local theatre community, and traveling to expose my daughter to various cultures, foods, people, and practices."

What do you wish people knew about Council?

"I, like many people, had many misconceptions about how the City Council operates. The reality is that there are many facets to what we do. We each serve on several boards and committees both for the city and for organizations throughout the community. We must review budgets, engage with citizens, attend events, support causes, have several weekly meetings, and make difficult decisions. As a member of City Council, we are paid, but only for one hour each week. However, we each put in at least 20 hours of work each week, if not more. I underestimated how much work is involved, but I am also happy to have been elected, to learn about the process, and hopefully affect positive change in people's lives."

"My city email is the best way to communicate with me. Although many people have reached out to me via other avenues. I will respond to all communication."
