I moved to Sublette County in 2016 and it didn't take long for me to feel as though Pinedale was home. My husband and I enjoy taking our dogs out to enjoy the wide-open spaces and spending time outdoors. Being a part of Bridges of Sublette County is truly a passion in my life. Both my husband and I come from generational poverty, so I know firsthand the struggles people face when breaking out of those patterns. It's an honor to be a part of helping my neighbors here in Sublette County and pass on what I've learned through the journey.
My family and I moved to Pinedale in 2011. Since then, I have been active in the community as a homeschooler, member of the Food Basket board, the Prevention Coalition, Church of the Resurrection, and various activities. I enjoy getting people together, whether it is over a meal, Shakespeare, hiking, singing or cross country skiing. Since the first Community Bridges training in 2017, I have been a part of creating Bridges of Sublette County in order to provide Bridges Out of Poverty training and classes locally. I am currently facilitating a third Getting Ahead class and love to see Bridges in action. I am grateful for the support of my husband, Matt, and our three kids.
My husband and I moved to Pinedale in 2001. We have two daughters, two dogs and three horses. I love spending time outside and treasure the wide open spaces of Sublette County. I am a lifelong educator and have served this community in the role of teacher, administrator, board member and advocate for underserved populations. I am honored to be part of Bridges of Sublette County so I can positively influence our community by helping underserved populations access resources and break down barriers.
My husband Shane and I have lived in Pinedale since 1992. We are so happy to be a part of this community and are thankful for the village that has helped us raise our two adult children, Tayln and Jordan, and Braxton, who is in the 8th grade. I was a Pinedale Middle School teacher for the first part of my career. Now, my husband and I are business owners who enjoy being involved in the community as much as we are able. I am proud to call Sublette County my home.
For over ten years my two children enjoyed summer vacations here in Pinedale with their grandparents. Ready for a fresh start, we became full-time residents in 2018. At first, every day was a new adventure as this city girl adjusted her sails to the wild winds of Wyoming and found the second chance I was hoping for. As I stepped out of my comfort zone, I started volunteering and doors began to open. I became a graduate of Getting Ahead and it didn’t take long to put what I learned into action as I was invited to become a Bridges board member. My knowledge has expanded exponentially as I completed Bridges trainings and assisted in facilitating Getting Ahead in a Just-Getting’-By-World, Getting Ahead in the Workplace and Money Matters 101 classes. I am doing things I once thought impossible thanks to Bridges.
