Hi! I'm Sarah. I live in Lincoln, VT with my husband and pup, Violet. We moved to Vermont about seven years ago in our skoolie, a school bus converted into a tiny house, and lived in it until we found our permanent home a couple of years ago. I love to spend time sailing on Lake Champlain in the summer and ski touring in the winter.

In my spare time, such as it exists, I enjoy hiking, table top role playing games, spending time with my pup Sprocket, and occasionally I’ll get myself out for a run.

Daniel Raymond

My name is Daniel Raymond and I'm very happy to be part of this year’s MAcc class. I took a less than traditional route here, so I'll try to be brief. I grew up in Johnson Vermont running around out in the woods with my 2 brothers. After high school I enlisting in the US Army as a cavalry scout for 3 years before moving pursuing my pilots ratings in California and Utah after my discharge. Aviation is a passion of mine and I hold an FAA commercial and flight instructor rating in helicopters. I was hoping to get my private rating in gliders this summer but could not do that this year because of the pandemic. After getting my pilot ratings I wound up back in Vermont working in Burlington as a locksmith at Dion's Security for several years before returning to school to further my opportunities. I received my bachelors degree in Business Administration from UVM in May 2020 and have been trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible this summer. I've been hiking, camping, and swimming as much as I can before the weather changes.

Kyle Wentzel

After graduating from Saint Michael’s College in 2018, I was fortunate to begin a full-time position here at UVM in the Disbursement Center. I specifically focus on travel & expenses, but I also assist with the University’s Purchasing Card program when needed. At St. Mikes, I studied business and accounting, but outside of class I was an active firefighter with Saint Michael’s Fire & Rescue, where I also served as the engineer and second lieutenant. I assisted in the maintenance and repair of our apparats and equipment in both of those positions. After graduating, I transferred to a different department and now serve on the Colchester Center Volunteer Fire Company, but I continue to work part-time as a dispatcher for St. Michael’s College and St. Michael’s Fire & Rescue. Although I currently live in Colchester, VT, I am originally from Portsmouth, RI, and I also enjoy skiing, camping, kayaking, and swimming.
