Emmalee Moore Case Management

What personal accomplishment are you most proud of?

My biggest personal accomplishment would probably be working full-time, going to school full-time and raising my family. One of my long-term goals while growing up was to graduate with my master's degree. I was able to do that while taking care of my kids and starting my case management business. I was a first generation student and being able to start a career, go to school and start my family at the same time was a huge blessing and I couldn’t have done it without my amazing support system.

What is your primary personal development goal/business goal for the next 5 years?

My biggest personal development goals are that I would like to start my doctorate degree in the near future as well as grow my business. I work as a case manager in the Laramie area serving adults with disabilities. I would like to branch out more to surrounding areas to assist my clients in receiving the services that they need and deserve, especially in smaller communities that may have less resources.

What is your biggest philanthropic achievement?

I have been doing volunteer work most of my life. I enjoy the opportunity to connect with people who come from a different background and I love hearing people’s stories and gaining a better understanding of why they are who they are. It gives me a better understanding of the world. A few of my greatest accomplishments are raising service dogs for the disabled, building homes in Mexico and teaching in Belize.

What action or event that you’ve been a part of do you believe has made the biggest difference in Laramie? Or, which action or event are you most proud of?

The Laramie community has a large population who depend on the Wyoming State Behavioral Health Developmental Disabilities Division to receive the services that they need. I have been working with the division for more than a year now and I was recently awarded a position on a committee to help identify sections of the rules that may require clarification, as well as developing recommendations for revisions of the rules that may currently create barriers for the individuals receiving services. This will not only impact the community of Laramie, but the state of Wyoming as well.

What excites you most about the future of Laramie?

The thing that excites me the most about the future of Laramie is that the community as a whole is so proactive in bettering the city. There are so many community members who are willing to help and there are so many opportunities to get involved.

What do you think has helped make you successful in your endeavors?

I believe what has helped make me successful in my endeavors is surrounding myself with like-minded people, a strong desire to continue learning and a drive to make the community a better place for everyone. I also couldn’t have done it without my support system of family and friends.

What advice would you give to other young professionals in Laramie?

My advice to other young professionals in Laramie is to get out and get involved! That’s how you learn and grow as a person. Also, figure out what you love to do and do it.
