Ann Hoogenboom Master of Public Administration, CDAE & EE Certificate Student

BA, Hispanic Studies Wheaton College


Advisors: Chris Koliba, Asim Zia

Ann grew up in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. She spent the last ten years outside of the state enjoying a wide variety of professional roles and experiences. She received her BA in Hispanic Studies from Wheaton College and went on to teach English in Spain. Later, she moved to Salt Lake City, UT to pursue her love for skiing the illustrious western mountains. While in Utah, she started a career in marketing. She later migrated north to explore the Pacific Northwest where she continued her career in advertising in Seattle, WA. As part of becoming a true Seattleite, combined with her identity as a Vermonter, it was only natural to progress towards becoming involved in environmental policy. Ann started working with the Pacific Northwest branch of the American Farmland Trust where she helped to manage a regional foodshed study project while simultaneously starting her Masters in Public Administration at the Evans School of Public Affairs. Last fall, Ann returned to the beautiful state of Vermont to continue her pursuit of an MPA and accept a position as a research assistant for the Vermont Research on Adaptation to Climate Change (RACC) project at the University of Vermont. Her current research work is focused on comparative case studies of community organizing to resiliency planning for climate change in the Mad River Valley and the Missisquoi Valley. Outside of her studies and research work, Ann can be found at the ski mountain, every weekend throughout the winter. When the snow melts, she looks forward to relearning all that Vermont has to offer in the summer, albeit that the green mountains are a little smaller than their western cousins, she is thrilled to be back learning and working in the best place in the world.
