A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:

MY HOMETOWN: I grew up on the Upper West side of Manhatten.  I spent most of my summers in Green River, Vermont in an old Jelly Mill my parents had converted into a summer home. When I was 18 my family moved to Marlboro, Vermont at the same time I went to college.  I moved to Middlebury, Vermont shortly after college.

MY EDUCATION I graduated from the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Bronx.  I went on to attend Hamilton College in Clinton New York where I earned a BA in Creative Writing, concentrating on poetry!  I earned a complimentary Minor in Biology!

MY CAREER: My first job was at a small garden nursery in Guilford, Vermont.  When I moved to Middlebury I began working at RockyDale Gardens in Bristol, Vermont.  My main job involved propagating plants, potting and retail sales.  I shared this seasonal job with a position as a staffer at Addison COunty Humane Society.  When my children were young I began to work at Mary Hogan School.  Today I LOVE working in the library.

OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: I love to read, write, garden and go for walks.  I love spending time relaxing with my family!

MY FAVORITE SUBJECT(s) IN SCHOOL WERE:  Math, Botany and Marine Science!
