Executive Director for the Rock Springs Housing Authority

Originally from a small town in Iowa, she moved to Wyoming the first time as a child during the boom in the late 70’s.  She graduated from Rock Springs High School and spent the next few years living in several western states.  Eventually her family moved back to Wyoming from Redmond, Washington in 1992.  My first job in housing was mowing lawns at a low income property in Rock Springs, Wyoming as a teenager.  I worked throughout the years in various states and property management positions, including leasing agent, property manager and eventually a regional property manager. My experience in property management and my position with the City of Rock Springs as a Senior Accounting Technician led me to my current position as Executive Director for the Rock Springs Housing Authority.   I became involved in affordable housing because I saw the struggles of the families that I worked with as a property manager.  Many families could not afford even the cheapest housing we offered.  No matter the circumstances they deserved someplace to call home.  A home they could take pride in and provide a safe place for their family.
