Favorite part of job? I love working with a supportive staff that is passionate about providing and promoting access to sexual and reproductive health care to women, men and teens across VT, NH, and ME. 

Most inspiring mentor? My supervisor from Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, Judy Neufeld. As my first supervisor out of college, she truly challenged me during my time at Big Sister. Working with her, I gained confidence in myself and learned how to be a better public speaker, networker, and business woman.

Who is your living hero? My mother, Virginia Keith. Growing up, I constantly watched her set high goals for herself. As we grew up, she managed work, schooling, and raising my brother and I, managing to excel in every area. I inherited my thirst for knowledge and strong work ethic and drive from her. I can also thank her for exposing me to my first political campaigns when she would tote me around to put up signs and canvass houses in our small town.

Favorite downtime activity? Potlucks or game nights with my close friends.

Favorite Vermont Escape?  Swimming in Lake Champlain.

Favorite social network? Tumblr

Favorite website? (Essential guide to independent music & beyond!)

Vermont Business Person you would most want to network with? Sarah Kenney, Public Policy Coordinator for the Vermont Network Against Domestic & Sexual Violence.
