Wyoming Dietetics Licensing Board

Board Office Updates

The State of Wyoming has adjusted its work policies to protect the health and safety of our staff and licensees. Effective immediately and until further notice, board staff will be working remotely.

Although the office will remain open, due to limited staffing we encourage you to e-mail board staff with inquiries. While we are constantly monitoring phone traffic, e-mail is the most efficient way to reach us:

Emily Cronbaugh - emily.cronbaugh@wyo.gov

Jason Brock -jason.brock1@wyo.gov

If you need to speak with a staff member, please call the office and leave a voicemail message. We will return your call as quickly as possible.

We continue to accept and process applications as usual, though processing times may be slightly delayed.

COVID-19 Practice Guidance

In light of recent events, several licensees have asked the Board to advise them how best to continue their practice and have specifically asked for the Board’s guidance on potential office closures.

The Dietetics Licensing Board cannot halt your practice due to COVID-19. If there would be any mandatory closures, it would not come from our office. We also cannot advise you on the correct course of action. The following links may help you make an informed decision regarding your business.
