I don’t like going on and on about my little irritants in life, but I believe this is an important one to address. Four years ago I worked for Victim services, I was in the criminal justice system side for six years….then I had to take a break.
I grew up and lived in Wyoming, since I was four years old. There is so much to love about our beautiful State. For example the summer sunsets will take a person’s breath away, and change their souls in a positive way. People are few and far between, I guess that is why it is the least populated state in the Nation.
When I started to work for social services in Wyoming, that is when I got a up close and personal in site into all the shenanigans that occur….and there is a multitude of story’s to tell. Believe me….multitude.
I understand in every job there is challenges, but when those challenges are coming from a woman who’s name is Sean Brazalle, that does NOT have the credentials to hold a position, then its my personal belief that they should not of ever been hired or promoted to that level. So I guess I am trying to figure out where the onus of responsibility should untimely be placed. Should it be placed upon her good friend and boss that promoted her to Deputy Director, Julie Tennant-Caine? (good ole boys club- at its not so- finest moment). Should it be placed upon the State for not regulating the personnel changes with in the Director’s department? Should it be placed upon a Federal level, because it is funded mainly from grants?? hhhhmmmmm. What do you think?
After much research I personally believe that it should be shared by all three. There is specific requirements for State and Federal job positions. For example:

Sean Brazzale likes to advertise her lack of achievements on Linkin website for professionals in all fields
What has bothered me greatly about her profile is that she continues to use her lack of education and experience to maintain jobs with the State of Wyoming. I believe that it is unethical and just really bad form. Under her education she states: Joint Center On Violence and Victim Studies, Washburn University and general education from Westminster High School. The profile does not state if she graduated from high school and I believe its a important piece of information to know. Her university education is actually in a Certificate of Completion. How do I know that? because I have the exact same Certification….after I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a BA.
With great responsibility there should be equal amount of accountability, with that said, I have to ask, why was she given the responsibility (in her case=abuse of power) and pay wage, and not held accountable for her lack of knowledge within the field and how her actions became detrimental to victim services? There are many examples that I personally could use to show how her lack of credibility that directly damaged victim services and basic morale for everyone involved.
The point I am trying to make is that the people of Wyoming need to be informed about what is happening to them in their own State. Lets try to banish the ideals that Wyoming does not deserve the best of services possible and not be used as a platform for certain circles to abuse the money, time and good faith of the people in our beautiful State.
