Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow (LIFTT) is pleased to announce that Patricia (Tricia) Cutright has been chosen as the agency’s new Data Manager. Cutright succeeds Steve Woodard who is retiring after more than a dozen years with LIFTT; the last two as Data Manager.
Cutright is no stranger to LIFTT. Since 2019, she has been part of the organization as a Peer Mentor, becoming enmeshed in the workings of LIFTT and promoting the independent living philosophy. Tricia has also assisted with the Peer Support Group, assisting IL Specialists in the Billings office, and representing LIFTT as part of the Yellowstone County Local Behavioral Health Advisory Committee.
“Our peer mentoring program is designed to educate about independent living and prepare the participating peers to learn skills that prepare them for further work either here at LIFTT or in the wider community,” said LIFTT Executive Director Carlos Ramalho.
“Tricia rising from the peer program to become our next Data Manager is a perfect example of that concept working as intended. I would hope people with disabilities would look at what Tricia has accomplished and see themselves doing similar things through our peer program.”
