I am a native of Germany and received my U.S. Citizenship in 2018. In Germany, I studied hotel management and worked in that field for a number of years. I have received certifications for business consulting and coaching, and I am a graduate of the University of Liberty where I obtained a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on Business and Psychology. When I moved to Cheyenne WY, I obtained a job with the WY Small Business Development Center and eventually became a business consultant for this organization. I worked there for about 5 years when the Department of Workforce Services, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) position of a Program Consultant/Small Business Consultant became available. I have been with VR for 15 years now.
I manage the Business Enterprise Program (BEP). In that role I am providing business consulting services to our clients, working with them to develop their business plans, study the feasibility of the proposed ventures, and I provide education and training services. I also manage the BEP budget.
In March 2023 I received my certification as a Community Partner Work Incentives Counselor, and in this role, I am providing Social Security counseling services to our VR clients. Personally, I enjoy biking, painting (not that good at it, but it's fun), and baking good and yummy breads for my family.
