Amy Albrecht
Amy AlbrechtDirector
Originally from Peoria, Illinois but an enthusiastic Wyoming transplant since 1992, Amy keeps hoping she’ll be considered a native and wears tall boots whenever possible. She has a background in advertising and public relations and credits the CVC’s CiViC Leadership Project with giving her the confidence to apply for the CVC Director position. Married to Mike and Mother-of-the-Minute award winner to Will and Nick, Amy works out at 5 a.m. and grabs a book whenever she has a free moment. She is convinced she has the best job on the planet.
Julie Greer
Julie GreerProject Coordinator
Julie is as loud and outgoing as Amy yet much better organized. She is fully in charge of CampFIRE as well as keeping the CVC running smoothly. After being Sheridan College’s Outdoor Education and Recreation Director, leadership camp is right up her tent pole. A graduate of the inaugural CiViC Project in 2003, Julie insists that it was the very best class. In fact, she demands to be called #1. Amy seldom acquiesces but likes to humor her. When not being humored, Julie can be found with her husband, Stuart Greer, and her raft of fun and crazy friends hiking, backpacking, fishing or canoeing in the Bighorns. She is a member of the Sheridan Community Land Trust Board and Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources Commission.

Look! A rare sighting of the entire CVC Advisory Board in one place!
