Andrea Steele
SageWest Health Care

I am from Fredericksburg, a small (less than 1000 people) town in northeast Iowa. After high school I attended North Iowa Community College for the Ophthalmic technician program. I worked as an Optician and Ophthalmic technician for nearly 7 years when my path changed to nursing.

With the birth of our second child who has significant health issues that required multiple hospitalizations and countless doctor visits, I decided to return to school for nursing. It was because of this that I realized the true meaning of a nursing shortage; babies and children don't get to come home without available nurses to care for them. I graduated two years later and became a Registered Nurse.

I found my passion in Surgical Nursing and have loved this area of nursing for over 11 years. In 2010 I entered into surgical leadership and management which has brought me to Riverton, Wyoming. I am currently the Director of Surgery and Infusion at SageWest.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Chamberlain College of Nursing and will complete my Master of Science in Nursing with an emphasis on organizational leadership and management from American Sentinel University in October 2015.

I have been married for over 20years to Jim, and we have 4 children. Laine (18), Brock (15), Summer (11) and Eli (8). We also have 2 labs, Marlee and Luke as well as 2 cats, Grayson and Daisy. We enjoy the beautiful state of Wyoming as well as camping, four-wheeling and spending time together.

I graduated from the 2014-2015 class of Leadership Fremont County and am very excited to be on the Board of Directors for this great program. I think Leadership Fremont County offers great networking, new experiences and an opportunity to support the resources and growth of our communities.

Sponsorship Program

Dear Sponsor,

This will be the tenth year for the Leadership Fremont County program, which was started jointly by the Riverton and Lander Chambers of Commerce.  Initial funding was originally provided by the Wyoming Business Council through its regional representative, Roger Bower.  The objectives for Leadership Fremont County are:

  • To identify participants with potential for community leadership
  • To acquaint these leaders with community issues, resources and opportunities
  • To increase the leadership skills of the program participants
  • To provide participants with opportunities to exchange ideas with each other and community leaders
  • To assist participants in finding roles in their communities
  • To encourage graduates to continue involvement by participating in the Leadership Alumni Association

Participants spend one whole day each month discussing issues, concerns, and problems related to education, social services, public policy, government relations, economic development, tribal history and relations as it relates to Fremont County.

In order to maintain a productive program and obtain these objectives that will benefit everyone in our county, we need your support.  Costs to provide quality training is rising and we must keep participant fees as low as possible to encourage participation so we are asking for your help.  We have set up three levels of sponsorship.  The money will be used to pay for speakers, facilities, meals and supplies.  By choosing one of the following sponsorships you receive advertising on several radio stations, the Chambers of Commerce monthly newsletters, and in the Riverton Ranger.  We appreciate your help and support!
