“I have dedicated my career to driving positive social change through innovative and entrepreneurial education. During my first Board term, I supported VSECU’s unique social and environmental mission as I worked to build exposure for young people to understand the benefits of living and working in Vermont. I believe VSECU is uniquely poised to empower possibilities for people, planet, and prosperity and improve the quality of life for all Vermonters. If reelected, I will continue to represent young Vermonters and serve as a bridge to meaningful opportunity in our communities, both in my support of sustainability and social impact initiatives and through statewide work on the Giving Committee.”
