Berlin Three-Year Term (Ending 2026)
My husband, Jim, and I have lived in Berlin since 1991. We have both been teaching for over 30 years. I was the preschool teacher in Berlin for 12 years and am currently the Early Childhood Programs Coordinator for the North Country Supervisory Union in the Northeast Kingdom. We have 2 children, Fiona and Nathaniel, who were educated at Berlin and U32. I believe in the great value that public education brings to our communities and our world. Each of our community schools provides a rich grounding in what it means to be a Vermonter and prepares our children to go out to the wider world. They are able to do so while maintaining the unique nature of each town. I am honored to be representing Berlin on the board.

I completed my Family Medicine residency in 2015 and now work as a family doctor at the Hardwick Area Health Center. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, gardening, swimming, hiking, and spending time with my husband and two daughters.

I was raised in Worcester and attended Doty and U-32. I left Vermont to attend college and have lived and worked in Pittsburgh, Fresno, and, most recently, Baltimore.
