Collins, where she served as the Executive Director for the Northern Colorado Component of the Colorado Medical Society. Prior to that, Maria directed non-profit work in Wyoming, reaching 23 counties as the Executive Director for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Maria is an alumni of the University of Wyoming, obtaining her Doctorate degree in 2015 and has said she is very excited to be back in Wyoming.

Joe Marr
Accountant

Joe believes working at the Foundation is rewarding because he can help impact the healthcare for everyone in his community. You’ll notice Joe frequently say Ivinson is a great place to come to work every day. Joe notes he has lived in enough different places to know how special Laramie is and what a reward it is to be able to call it home. Spending time in the hills with his family - including the ones that bark - and hiking, camping, and exploring is the best way for everyone to spend the summer. Joe says being one small part of Ivinson has been a great experience, and living in Wyoming will always be his favorite.

Andie Meyer
Coordinator

Andie joined the Ivinson Foundation team in the fall of 2020 as the Foundation Coordinator. She holds her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Health Promotion and is a graduate of the University of Wyoming. At Ivinson, Andie is able to make her own contributions to the community by supporting healthcare professionals and the important services they provide. After using Ivinson’s services for her own family, Andie loves working somewhere she feels she is able to make a difference. Outside of the Foundation, Andie teaches spin and fitness classes, and enjoys travelling and spending time with her family.
