Hi! I’m Stephanie Ghormley and I have been the Program Supervisor for NOWCAP Parents as Teachers in Fremont County since September of 2016. Originally from the Black Hills in South Dakota, I earned my bachelors in Human Services and Sociology from Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD in 2007. While earning my degree I worked a variety of different jobs, including at a veterinary clinic, hostess at a restaurant, pet shop, and jewelry store and working for a nonprofit that worked with adults with disabilities in a home-like setting. After graduation from college, I managed an accessory store for two years. After having my first child, I changed careers again and began working as a case manager for a non-profit that works with adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses. I worked there for three years, until my husband took a teaching job on the Wind River Reservation in 2013. I decided to stay home with my three young children for three years until I took the position with Parents as Teachers. I have always had a passion to help others, but had never worked with young children, other than having my own three children. I have learned so much about development and the importance of playing with your child/children!
There is so much parent shaming in the world nowadays and parents are always so hard on themselves. What I like most about this program is that it is positive. We focus on parents’ strengths. We have the ability to come alongside parents and build them up and show them how good of a job they are doing with their children!

Hi, I'm Hope Clarke I was born in Buffalo Wyoming and lived here off and on all my life until I was in high school my family moved to Texas. After my divorce I moved home to Wyoming. I have 3 wonderful daughters and 4 terrific grand kids and counting. I started working at a preschool in 2001 and in 2006 I got my early childhood degree from Northwest college. I enjoyed 18 years of teaching preschool. Now I'm looking forward to working with families as a parent educator with Parents as Teachers.
I love working with families; watching them grow and change. I believe that parents have success within them already. I am excited that I get to be part of something as unique as our families.
Hello, I am Amanda Wilczewski. I am a Parent Educator for Parents as Teachers in Fremont County and have been in my position since September of 2020. I was born and raised in Northwest Washington and moved to Wyoming in High School, where I eventually graduated and started a family of my own. I am married with one son, two daughters and a houseful of pets. I was able to stay home with my children for the first year of each of their lives and in between have been in and out of a variety of jobs but always seemed to come back to those focused around early childhood environments. I have a passion for this program and hold it near and dear to my heart because I was enrolled in it before coming to work with them and received visits with my youngest daughter that have had a lasting impact on my entire family. I strongly believe that every family could benefit from being a part of this program and I know my family would not be where we are today without Parents as Teachers.
