Annmarie has over 20 years of experience working in the public sector. She began her professional career teaching environmental and aerospace sciences in nontraditional settings. A desire to expand her teaching skills led her to the high school level where she recognized she had a passion for working with at-risk youth. After several years of traditional classroom teaching, she chose to focus her energies on the at-risk youth population and developed an independent and transitional living program for youth aging out of the foster care and juvenile justice systems in Wyoming. Seeing the need to strengthen the social ecology around youth she was serving directed her to the prevention field where she led a community prevention and wellness office addressing the issues of substance abuse, tobacco-free environments, child wellness, and chronic disease. Annmarie’s areas of interest continue to be focused on at-risk youth, as well as substance abuse prevention, comprehensive community development, and violence prevention.
Annmarie works remotely from her home in Wyoming. As an avid outdoorswoman, Annmarie enjoys fly fishing, camping, and rafting, as well as spending time with her husband, Dean, and two children.
