Our Staff-

Jan Cartwright – Executive Director


Jan Cartwright has worked with community health centers (CHCs) in Wyoming for almost 12 years at the Wyoming Primary Care Association and has served as the Executive Director for the past six. She describes her move to the WYPCA as the smartest and luckiest event in her career.

The best part of her work, she reports, is supporting the growth of community health centers in Wyoming and integrating their work to provide quality care for the under-served. This is only possible because of strong collaborations within the community health center network regionally and nationally, the partnership with the Wyoming Office of Rural Health and with many other safety-net and non-profit allies.

Outside of work, she is a member of the Cheyenne League of Women Voters and has a keen interest in mental health and equity issues. Jan is a native of Casper, Wyoming and has a BSW from the University of Wyoming/Casper College.  She has five grown children and three grandchildren who are all the brightest parts of her life.
