LYMAN – Monica Streeter was named the new executive director of the Greater Bridger Valley Chamber of Commerce

Streeter started on April 9., and replaces former director Frank Register.

Streeter is a fourth generation native of Bridger Valley. According to Streeter, the first Anson came to the Bridger Valley to Fort Bridger Valley with the U.S. Cavalry; she is not sure of the year.

A 1984 graduate of Lyman High School, Streeter continued her education in Cheyenne where she completed coursework to become a licensed practical nurse. She worked in the emergency room at South Lincoln Medical Center in Kemmerer for several years where she met and married her husband. He enlisted in the United States Navy, and she for several years followed him at several assignments across the United States from Maryland to California.

She served the American Red Cross for15 years, in several different positions including one where she helped to coordinate disaster relief and then later served as a Navy ombudsman for 19 years where she helped to build family programs.

Streeter was traveling to Wyoming, from Red Cross training in Oakland, Calif., when at the top of Donner Pass she received a phone call that a contract position for the National Guard was available. She drove to Salt Lake City, Utah, for an interview the next morning.

Streeter moved back to Bridger Valley in 2003 as she wanted to return to her roots.

“When I came back to Lyman, I wanted to help my community succeed,” she said. Because I’d been all over the country helping other communities succeed.”
