I grew up in Norwich, VT: a small town on the border of VT and NH. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Vermont and earned a bachelor of science in Environmental Sciences with a focus in Water Resources. Following the path of my education I spent a year as an environmental lab analyst where I conducted a series of water analysis to determine the cleanliness of the samples. I learned a great deal about water quality and the tests that determine its content. In my free time I enjoy running, mountain biking, walking, hiking, rowing, reading, and crocheting.
