Career Counselor, Business

After getting my BA in English, I taught English in Japan and then wondered what else I could do with my degree. I've lived, worked, and traveled across the U.S. from California and Oregon to Maine, and tried my hand at a range of jobs including office management, aromatherapy, and crisis intervention. I have continued to be curious about the relationship between what we learn in school and what we do for work in the "real world." I graduated from UVM with a Masters in Counseling in 2006, and have worked with a wide range of clients including children, elders, families, couples, and students. Besides career exploration, I enjoy yoga, hiking, biking, cross country skiing and just being outside.
