Favorite part of job? Collaborating with creative, entrepreneurial Vermonters. It's amazing how much business here is mutually beneficial!

Most inspiring mentor? My Grandmother, who founded and ran several successful businesses while also raising a family and maintaing a social and philanthropic network.
