Tanda Hicks was born and raised in Wheatland, Wyoming. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming in Wildlife Management. Tanda comments, “Knowing the job market was difficult, I decided to try nursing school and in 1997 graduated from LCCC with an Associate’s degree in Nursing. From that time on I knew that is what I was called to do! I worked as a nurse and then quickly decided to pursue my Master’s degree as I knew I wanted to work in a rural clinic setting. I graduated from the University of Wyoming Nursing Program with a Master’s in nursing in 2002. I was able to move to Wheatland and work at the Laramie Peak Medical clinic and then—once that practice dissolved—I moved over to the Wheatland Medical clinic. I have been fortunate enough to work in the town that I grew up in for the past 18 years. In October of 2020, I went to work for MHCC in Wheatland at the Laramie Peak Rural Health Clinic. MHCC is patient-centered and a small rural-focused group, which fits my style of health care. I believe most of us who live in rural Wyoming do so for a reason. This includes a more personal approach to health care. The health care team should be people we know and trust.

My husband Martin and I have 3 children who keep us very busy. They participate in many sports and we are avid spectators of everything from football to basketball to wrestling to 4H and everything in-between. We keep busy fly fishing in the summer and hunting in the fall and winter as well. I am also very involved in my church and love teaching our weekly youth program, Pioneers for Christ.

Growing up in Wheatland with most of my family nearby was such a blessing to me. I am very fortunate to have been able to return here to give back to this community and to continue to provide health care here. I strive to provide quality and compassionate care to patients in rural Wyoming. I want patients to participate in their care, provide feedback and then be able to help them achieve the best quality of life possible.”
