UW Social Work student Tea Hill with friend Emma Juelfs.UW Student Combines Disabilities Studies, Social Work with Entrepreneurism

Students beginning their studies in the University of Wyoming Division of Social Work are immediately encouraged to embrace career goals that include creating positive change in society and promoting the health and well-being of individuals, families, organizations and communities throughout Wyoming and beyond.

For Belle Fourche, S.D., native Tea Hill, the pursuit of a second course of study added depth and a layer of human understanding that helped form a distinct career path. Hill is set to graduate this spring from the UW College of Health Sciences with a Bachelor of Social Work and a minor in disability studies, offered through the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND).

After placing third in the 2019 UW John P. Ellbogen $50K Entrepreneurship Competition, Hill was awarded $10,000 for a business model that would incorporate the knowledge and values of both her major and minor. Torch Creamery, an ice cream business whose current motto is “sugar with a mission,” was conceived by Hill and her sister Tesa as a business model that would provide inclusive employment for both individuals with and without disabilities.

Scot and Amy Schmidt, both University of Wyoming graduates, were fully prepared to begin their career paths as health care professionals.

That all changed when the two became owners of North Star Pharmacy and Infusion in Cheyenne. Starting in 2007, as North Star Infusion Inc., the pharmacy’s initial focus was specializing in home infusion, a therapy involving intravenous or subcutaneous administration of drugs to patients at home.

Realizing a need for a more expanded, multidisciplinary team approach to patient care with other health care providers, North Star Pharmacy joined the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network in Wyoming (CPESN-WY), with Scot and Amy serving in leadership roles. The two provide guidance and assistance for a network of participating pharmacies.

“Merging our health care educations together allows us to care for the patient as a whole,” says Amy Schmidt, who graduated from UW in 1999 with a master’s degree in social work. “Patients are not just a drug or a hip or a knee. They are a whole person, and we are working hard to care for the patient over time as a whole.”
