Kilty Brown, MPA, RN

Executive Director

After graduating from the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Nursing, Kilty moved to Wyoming to embark on a career in healthcare. As a nurse, she worked across the continuum of healthcare until she found her passion in hospice and palliative care. She considers providing comfort in an individual’s last days one of the greatest honors of her career.

Kilty is active in the palliative care community both regionally and nationally. She gives back to the community through Meals on Wheels and the Casper College School of Nursing Advisory Board.
