Wyoming Board of Physical Therapy

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:

JoAnn Reid - joann.reid@wyo.gov

Carla Fleming - carla.fleming@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.

CCU COVID-19 Policy

The Wyoming Legislature created the Board of Physical Therapy in 1961 to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by regulating the practice of physical therapy.

The Board is not the same as the Wyoming Physical Therapy Association. The Board, unlike the association, does not advocate on behalf of the licensee, but on behalf of the public consumer. While the Board and the Association may collaborate, their roles are different.

The Wyoming Board of Physical Therapy is staffed through the Professional Licensing Boards Office, a division of A&I.
