Our Board

Members of the WAA board are volunteers and do not receive compensation. We are dedicated to providing assistance to all Wyoming residents living with HIV/AIDS.



A founding member of WyoAIDS Walk (and one of the Stilettos), Jim has been doing HIV prevention work in Wyoming since the mid-90’s. He was previously on the boards for the Albany County AIDS Project and Laramie Reproductive Health. He has spent time as certified HIV tester and counselor, as well as serving previously on the HIV Materials Review Committee.



A Wyoming native, Scott brings a passion for non-profit work and working with underserved populations throughout Wyoming. With Wyo AIDS Assistance, Scott hopes to diversify the programs and presentations we offer, develop fundraising efforts and increase community awareness and support.



Bill Hankins has been working in the non-profit sector professionally, and as a volunteer, for over 15 years. Bill developed a strong sense of devotion for the nonprofit sector while serving on various Advisory Boards throughout the state of Wyoming. As a small town business owner Bill developed a love for Wyoming and his community. These experiences give Bill a deep appreciation of how nonprofits seek to improve the quality of life for people in Wyoming; one program at a time.
