Dr. Angela Biggs, WRC Medical Director
Blessings! My name is Angela Biggs and it has been a privilege for me to serve as Medical Director of WRC. I was born and raised in Worland, Wyoming. Attending the University of Wyoming, I met my future husband, Rod, who grew up in Casper. We both attended Creighton University School of Medicine, graduating in 2000. In 2004, I graduated from residency in obstetrics and gynecology from the Medical Education and Research Center – Michigan State University. I worked with a well respected practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan for one year until Rod graduated from general surgery residency in 2005. We moved to Gillette in July of 2005. The community has been VERY welcoming and we have the advantage of being much closer to our parents who still reside in Worland and Casper.
We are blessed with four beautiful children: Zoe, Sophia, Michael and John. We enjoy spending time together and have been spending much of that time in the Big Horn Mountains enjoying God’s awesome creation!
I became involved with the WRC after attending a fundraising banquet in October of 2006. At that time, the goal was to become a medical clinic and offer ultrasound. After a powerful evening of testimony, I approached Diane to let her know that if I was needed, I was happy to help in any capacity! Since that time, we have grown to not only offer ultrasound but to offer sexually transmitted infection testing and now treatment. We have developed policies and procedures to be sure that each client is well served, and continue to evolve this process for continued improvement. We are blessed with a dedicated and hard working paid and volunteer staff that has made it easy for me to serve in this role.
My calling to women’s health started at a young age. When I was in 6th grade I first mentioned wanting to become an obstetrician (my mom helped me voice the vocabulary!). Later in my life, I learned that I was the result of an unplanned pregnancy. By the grace of God, I was given life! My eyes are now wide open to the men and women whose parents chose life for them, even in challenging situations. The WRC gives me the opportunity to help parents give their unborn children the same precious gift of life. I look forward to serving for many years to come!

Nancy Fulton, RN: Senior Nurse
My name is Nancy Fulton. I was born and raised in beautiful Butte, MT. I graduated from Montana State University (MSU) in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After getting married my husband’s career took us to Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Michigan, back to Butte, to Tonopah, NV, Sandy, UT, and finally to Gillette, WY. At those various places we called home I worked as an RN (usually part-time) and also spent time as a stay-at-home mom. When my husband was in the Air Force I did not work as an RN, but was a Red Cross Volunteer at the OB/GYN clinic at the base hospital. When we moved to Gillette I did not seek employment as a nurse.
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Mike, for almost 29 years. He supports me in my job and is also a great supporter of the WRC Clinic. We have 3 children: our 26 year old daughter, lives and works in Gillette, and two sons ages 23 years and 21 years who are still pursuing their degrees at college.
Sherilyn Likewise, Resource Coordinator
I am privileged to serve the Women’s Resource Center on Earn While You Learn Education Mondays as receptionist and baby holder, and on clinic Tuesdays and Wednesdays as receptionist. I earned a BS in Psychology with a minor in Theatre from the University of Wyoming in 1990 and have worked as a librarian, medical receptionist, financial counselor, and English teacher, among other things. I love to read, sew, quilt, craft, cook, bake, and hold other people’s babies. I have lived in Nevada, Texas, Washington, California, and all over Wyoming, but finally settled in Gillette in 2005. I married my husband, Brian, in 2008. The Women’s Resource Center has been a ministry close to both of our hearts that we have been privileged to support for several years. When the opportunity to begin volunteering arose in early 2017, I jumped at the chance! I am thrilled to be a part of the ministry of the Center, and I am continually awed at how God works in the lives and hearts of the women we touch each day. I came on staff as Administrative Assistant in August of 2017, and I look forward to serving for as long as God allows.

Sawyer Poitra, RN: CEO
Sawyer began working part time as a registered nurse at WRC in October of 2010. She received training and certification in performing limited obstetrical ultrasounds, which is provided for patients on a daily basis. Sawyer received her nursing education through Gillette College, and went on to earn her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing through the University of Wyoming in 2012. In 2016, Sawyer transitioned positions to become the new CEO of Women’s Resource Center. Sawyer is blessed with a wonderful husband and three children that keep her busy!
In 2015, God lead Sawyer to start the first Embrace Grace ministry group in Gillette, which is a support ministry for single and pregnant mothers. Sawyer and her family are very active in their church, and are also a foster family for children in need.
WRC is very close to Sawyer’s heart, and she is happy to be a part of what God is doing through the Center to help women through the crisis phase of an unplanned pregnancy.
