Mikel Scott | Executive Director
Bringing people off the streets and into safety is how I got started in this line of work. I love being able to see our clients progress, build confidence, and meet their goals. I started with the Council in 2015 as the Program Director. I now face new challenges -that keep me on my toes- as the Executive Director. I love my work at CCS because we are genuinely trying to help people out of poverty regardless of age, gender, race, or background. I’ve made great friends and the best part is that I get to watch those friends use their talents to change lives. Outside of CCS, I am an avid gardener, traveler, reader, and explorer. With me on my adventures are my husband and daughter. We also have two rescue kitties (my best buddies), Mr. Bingley- a giant orange cat and Frankenstein, our deaf and…unique cat.
Mary Campagna | Finance Director
I’ve been at the Council since 2016 and I really enjoy it because there’s such a great atmosphere here. We all get along so well and laugh a lot! Originally from the Boston area of Massachusetts, my husband and I now own a small ranch where we care for our cows, horses and 4 dogs. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and running.
Misty Lange | Fundraising Coordinator
I was born and raised, right here in Gillette. I was a graduate of both CCHS and GCC. After many years of working with the public in different areas of agriculture, sports, and administration, I found the Council. Each member of the staff would absolutely go out of their way to help someone in need. It’s an incredible organization to be a part of. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my son, fishing with my husband, and watching hockey.
Avery Kerman | Development Officer
I was born in California but called Colorado home for 12 years before attending the University of Wyoming. I received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Political Science and moved up to Gillette. I have spent most of my time here working with incredible nonprofits and other local businesses and have been so amazed and grateful to live in such a kind and supportive community. I look forward to working with CCS to continue to positively impact and support the community members that need it the most. In my free time, you can find me traveling, cooking, playing tennis, or more than likely posted on the couch with my boyfriend and kitten.
Tracy Obert | Housing Programs Manager
I have been with the Council for 12 years! I am the Housing Programs Manager, which means I oversee the Emergency Shelter, Apartments for Families, Apartments for Individuals, and the Group Home. I love to see our clients succeed, it’s why I enjoy working at CCS. I am also very involved with the Wyoming Homeless Collaborative and currently serve as the Collaborative Board’s Vice-Chair. When I’m not at work I enjoy my garden and many pets. I originally shared my home with 1 dog and 2 cats, but now house 4 dogs and 4 cats. In my spare time, I am working towards certification as a dog trainer.
Noel Eberhard | Housing Case Manager
I’m the housing case manager here at the Council and can say I have been pleasantly surprised with how much Gillette has to offer those in need. I love meeting with clients and hearing their stories so I know the best ways to help them. I’ve lived many places, but Gillette will always be home. I have a criminal justice background and recently graduated from Black Hills State University. I have a deep passion for psychology and all things strange or creepy. I’m an adventurer at heart and working at the Council has been one of my favorite adventures so far.
Sherrie Haynes | Emergency Assistance & Section 8 Intake Agent
I’ve been with the Council for 7 years! I have worked as the Intake Specialist for the Food Pantry, and now I manage Emergency Assistance funding and am the Section 8 Intake Agent for Campbell County. I really enjoy helping people who are struggling and working to better their situation. Plus I work with a wonderful team who makes work fun! When I’m not at work I like to go to the lake or the mountains to enjoy camping and fishing.
Angie McQuarrie | Food Pantry Assistant
I love that my job is a part of giving back to the community. I started as the Food Donation Truck Driver in August of this year. Being able to work someplace that provides so many different services that help the community is very rewarding and I consider it a blessing. I’m originally from the small town of Worland, Wyoming and outside of work you can find me enjoying time with my family or in a quiet place reading.
Karen Archer | ERAP Specialist
I’m originally from Gettysburg, SD – “where the battle wasn’t”. I’ve lived in Virginia, Texas, and Pennsylvania, but have called Wyoming home for the last 40 years! Here in Gillette, I am the Greenhouse (Group Home) Manager for the Council of Community Services. I enjoy the work that I do! I feel like I make a difference in people’s lives and I love seeing people’s lives change. Over time you can always see people change and improve. When I’m not working, I love to travel and see different places. I’m active in my church and have been part of Beta Sigma Phi sorority in Wright for 22 years. My son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, and sister with her grandchildren all live here in town and I enjoy spending free time with them.
Thomas Addleman | Weatherization Manager
I am the manager of the Weatherization program. I have been with the Council for 8 years and take comfort in knowing my work is making a positive impact and improving the quality of people’s lives. My crew and I take great pride in the work we do! We enjoy helping people and providing a great service to those in need. Outside of work I like to hunt, fish, travel, do yard work, and spend time with family, friends, and my two small and adorable dogs!
Remembering: Emmaline Sargent | Weatherization Administrative Assistant
Emmaline has been a valued member of our team from her first day and will be deeply missed. Emmaline was a good spirited, kindhearted, and hard-working woman, with a passion for her family, extended work family, and clients. We remember her kindness and willingness to serve the community.
Brandon Steele | Weatherization Crew Lead
I really enjoy working at CCS because I get to help people. The Weatherization Program is such a beneficial program for those who need energy assistance to make their home more comfortable and safe. I was born and raised here in Gillette and in my free time, I enjoy camping and fishing.
