What type of work do you typically do for CRS?
Like most of us at CRS, I wear more than one hat. As coordinator for the Vermont State Data Center, I engage in efforts to ensure that all Vermonters have ready access to
the data and information resources necessary to ensure accurate and informed decision-making. As a research specialist I help organizations answer questions that inform planning, policy-making and action.
What are some of your favorite past projects that you've worked on? Why?
I particularly enjoy working with organizations seeking to directly improve the condition of Vermonters. I am grateful to have had many opportunities to assist in this type of work.
What else would you like people to know about you professionally?
I am particularly interested in finding ways to enhance Vermont's rural economy. We face unique geographic and population challenges though I believe these challenges encourage unique solutions. Developing and testing these solutions are of great interest to me.
What is your favorite thing about Vermont?
There are so many things I like, including our working landscapes, villages, emphasis on quality of life, excellent sense of community and accessibility to government. And I particularly enjoy the incredible Vermonters who work hard to enhance and preserve what makes it so special here.
