Areas of Interest

Experiential learning, career development, social justice, and service learning

I did most of my growing up in small towns in northern New Hampshire and Vermont and attended UVM as an undergraduate student. After living and working in Washington, DC for a number of years, I earned my Master's Degree in Higher Education from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I have been working at UVM as a career counselor since 2005 and greatly enjoy talking with students and alumni about their interests, passions, and life directions.

My professional interests include, but are not limited to, experiential learning, career development, social justice, and service learning. Some of my outside-of-work-passions include outdoor adventures, social justice, local community involvement, jewelry and card making, reading, and staying connected with friends and family.
