I was born and raised in Casper, WY and my family and I moved to Sweetwater County when I was promoted to Sergeant with the Wyoming Highway Patrol. We have lived here since 1993 and I have been involved in law enforcement as a Sergeant and Lieutenant with the WHP and as Sheriff of Sweetwater County from 2003 to 2007.
My family has been in Sweetwater County for quite some time. I’m the fifth generation to call this community home. My great-great-grandfather Louis Sather came to Rock Springs in the late 1800s in search of opportunity – which he found in a coal mine. That job paved the way for him to start a family, open his own business, and create a good life in Sweetwater County.
My family and I are lifelong residents of Rock Springs and Sweetwater County. I retired from the oil and gas industry after a successful 35 year career. My responsibilities included finance, accounting, and asset management.
As a Wyoming native with backgrounds in education, sales, agriculture and public service and a graduate of Green River High School, I have deep roots in the state.
