Gloria Stoddard, FNP
With an interest in health that began as a child, Gloria Stoddard enrolled in the University of Wyoming School of Nursing and graduated with a BSN in 1980. She later completed a Master of Science degree in Health Care Administration from University of St. Francis and in 2003, received a second Master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Wyoming to become a Nurse Practitioner.
Throughout her 30-year career in health care, she has had the opportunity to work in clinical settings, in administrative roles at IMH, and in teaching roles as a faculty member for the University of Wyoming School of Nursing.
Gloria has years of knowledge and experience in women’s health care issues and is particularly interested in helping patients manage chronic health conditions. Additionally, she has a particular interest in working with her patients to achieve wellness through a holistic approach to proactive and preventative care. Her goal is to provide care that is accessible, educational, and compassionate. Through the SMHW website, she and her staff hope to provide visitors with information about the clinic, up-to-date health information, and links to reliable health sites.
Gloria feels blessed to be involved in a profession that is so fulfilling and that allows her to be engaged with so many wonderful professionals in the community.
She is a life-long resident of Laramie and has a rich ancestral heritage in the Laramie area. When Wyoming was still a territory, her ancestral family came to the area to “settle the west.” Many were ranchers in the area and many served important roles in helping to form the community of Laramie as it exists today. Her father worked on the Union Pacific Railroad and Gloria’s family owned and ran a boarding house in Laramie when she was growing up.
She and her husband have five adult children – Jim, Sara, Caroline, Kevin, and Ian – and five grandchildren – Brendan, Taylor, Claire, Ethan, and Erika.

Personal values that Nancy portrays in her nursing practice are honesty, nurturing, versatility, and diversity.
