Our Team

Tyler Daugherty

Chief Executive Officer

Meet Tyler, serving as Visit Casper's CEO since December 2022. Tyler was recruited all the way from Dubuque, Iowa where he worked in the tourism industry for ten years prior to taking the job in Casper and moving his family to the Great American West. Sports have always been in his DNA- not only was he an avid basketball player at the University of Dubuque, but he also coached college basketball + track & field at Indiana University East, along with coaching High School basketball at his alma mater in Bellevue, IA. Though Tyler and his family are fairly new to the area, they're excited to continue exploring Natrona County and discover all there is to experience in our wonderful community. Growing up on a farm helped shape his determination and drive in all things he puts his mind to. He is anxious to challenge himself on this career path and looks forward to building and maintaining community and partner relationships.

Terri Weinhandl

Operations Manager

Let us introduce you to Terri, our fearless Operations Manager on the Visit Casper team. As a transplant from Northern Minnesota, Terri's love for rural areas and passion for community all assisted her well when her and her husband moved to the Oil City to start a life and a family together. Fast forward thirty years, two daughters and two spunky grandkids later, and she can't imagine calling any other place home. In her role she is looking forward to staying in the know on all things Casper and shedding a positive light on not only our office, but the community as a whole. When Terri is not keeping the Visit Casper team at our best, you can find her walking alongside the North Platte River on a beautiful afternoon and chasing her busy grandkids around town.

Luke Gilliam

Director of Sales & Development

Luke is a Texas native and moved to Casper in the Fall of 2015. Luke's love for this city comes from the community's pride in their history and excitement about their future. As the Director of Sales & Development, his favorite part of his job is having the opportunity to sell everything that Casper has to offer and representing the community and its business owners at conferences and sales meetings around the nation. Luke's "go-to" tourist attraction is Hogadon Basin Ski Area, as it's not only an incredible space for outdoor adventure, but it also has one of the best views of Casper and is a great place to catch a sunset. Outside of the office, Luke can often be found snowshoeing or hiking Casper Mountain with his wife and dog.

Amanda Sewell

Business Development Coordinator

Amanda has always found Casper to be mighty; as a local with deep roots here, she has loved watching the community bloom into a bustling city. Besides being born here, what makes it home is a district full of character and opportunity without ever losing that small town Wyoming feeling. As the Business Development Coordinator at Visit Casper, she is eager to breathe new life into not only our community, but into the tourism industry as a whole. Although there are so many things to be proud of, her favorite to revel in is Casper's kindness and welcoming nature. She believes that Natrona County and the people that call it home have a way of leaving a lasting impression. In our office and around town you can find Amanda sharing her best kept hideaways and setting beauty trends.

Wayne Stewart

Director of Marketing & Communications

You may recognize Wayne, as he rejoined the Visit Casper team in March of 2023. Though he wasn't born in Wyoming, he has called Casper home since 2019 due to the welcoming friendships, partnerships, and general connections he has made. Wayne is most proud of the ambition that many individuals have in our community; those who are eager to make Natrona County a better place to visit and live is what keeps him motivated in his career. His hope is to have a greater impact on Casper by being an excellent representative in both his professional and personal life. When Wayne isn't in the office, you'll find him enjoying the outdoors. His favorite Casper secret is the trail running scene, which he's excited to multiply the audience for and attract more visitors to enjoy our beautiful trails to run on.

Liz Bowers

Analytics and Social Marketing Coordinator

Meet Liz, the face behind Visit Casper and 5150' Local's social media.
