Our Team

Barbara Myers

Executive Director

In 2004, Barbara joined her husband, Dave Myers, co-founder and Executive Director of Evergreen Service Providers, to restructure and oversee operation of the non-profit agency that was created to serve adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and place them in loving, supportive Host Homes. After Dave’s passing, Barbara assumed the role of Executive Director. She leads a team of smart, compassionate, and service-minded people to carry out Evergreen’s mission.

Prior to joining Evergreen, Barbara had two decades of hospital case management experience and managed a day program for the developmentally disabled, working closely with Federal and State funding sources. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Human Services from Metropolitan State University of Denver.

Most rewarding to Barbara in her role as Executive Director is seeing the IDD Individuals served by Evergreen thrive in loving, nurturing homes, improve their quality of life and achieve their goals. Outside of work, Barbara enjoys spending her personal time with her family and her dogs, Bobby and Annie.

Richard Trebus

Community Relations Manager

Richard cultivates and establishes new Host Home Providers for Evergreen Service Providers and coordinates training and development for them as well as for Family Caregivers. He develops and maintains relationships and communication with Community Centered Boards and Case Managers of IDD Individuals. Richard also coordinates meet-and-greets between IDD Individuals and prospective Host Home Providers to find the perfect fit.

Richard has worked with agencies and persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities for 25+ years and holds a Master of Education and Human Resource Studies degree.

Most meaningful to Richard about the role he fills at Evergreen Service Providers is assisting Individuals to find the right placement to fit their needs and preferences. Away from work Richard enjoys the outdoors, playing sports, and developing his culinary skills.

Deanne Gardner

Executive Assistant

Deanne provides support to the Executive Director, Evergreen staff, and Host Home Providers and handles many administrative responsibilities. Serving IDD Individuals, she ensures that each person’s Medicaid and Social Security benefits are eligible and current and processes Medicaid billing. She tracks the personal needs of the IDD Individuals Evergreen serves and follows up to make sure those needs are met.

Deanne has a college education with an emphasis on accounting. The most rewarding part of Deanne’s role with Evergreen is getting to know the Host Home Providers and supporting them in any way she can to ensure that all of Evergreen Service Providers’ Individuals have a nice, safe place to live.

Outside of work, Deanne enjoys spending her personal time with her family and friends and enjoys a beach and palm trees when she has the opportunity.

Shannon Ostby

Program Manager

Shannon manages programs for the IDD Individuals served by Evergreen Service Provider’s residential program and provides support to them and the Host Home Providers (HHPs) and Family Caregivers who share their homes with them. She ensures that documentation and other requirements are met and acts as the bridge between Host Homes, families of Individuals, and agencies.

Bringing a solid background and broad experience to Evergreen, Shannon has been involved with the IDD community since 2013. She started out working with agencies, then transitioned into case management and, since November 2019, has worked with residential programs.

Shannon loves getting to know the IDD Individuals, deciphering their needs, and having the opportunity to make a positive impact on their lives. She says it’s rewarding to see them living their best lives and knowing she plays a part in making that happen.

When she’s not working, Shannon enjoys being with family, camping, watching football and spending time with her dog, Kora.

Jamie Scott


Jamie Scott oversees the medical needs and care of the IDD Individuals served by Evergreen Service Providers. A nurse for 20 years, she works closely with Evergreen’s Host Home Providers, supporting them in the care of the Individuals who share their homes, making herself available to answer any medical questions they may have. Her triaging and assessment skills are invaluable when working with IDD Individuals since they may sometimes be unable to fully communicate their symptoms and concerns. Jamie finds that listening is key and acts as their eyes and ears, often to be able to advise HHPs whether a situation is urgent or can wait for an appointment with the PCP.

She helps coordinate dental, vision, and annual physical appointments as well as follow-ups, monitors medication and medication changes, maintains medical records, provides resources and information about diet and healthcare, helps locate specialists, intercedes with doctors, acts as an advocate for Individuals, participates in service plan meetings, and maintains communication and coordination with the Evergreen staff.

Jamie shared that the IDD population appeals to her because they are vulnerable and need someone to watch out for them, advocate for them, and care for them. She enjoys making a difference for this community that she feels may be underserved.
