A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
MY HOMETOWN: I grew up in Constable, New York. It is a small town along the Canadian border in Northern, New York. I lived in Massachusetts for three years before moving to Vermont in 2003.
MY EDUCATION: I graduated from Franklin Academy High School in New York. From there I went on to Wadhams Hall Seminary College and received a degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies. I went on to Plattsburgh State University earning a Master’s Degree in School Counseling.
MY CAREER: After earning my Masters Degree I worked for three years as an Outpatient Counselor and Crisis Clinician in Western Massachusetts. My wife and I decided to move to Vermont to raise our family. I worked for three years at Berkshire Elementary School before joining the staff at Mary Hogan School.
OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: I have two school-aged sons who keep me busy in Cub Scouts and 4H. Those who know me know that I really enjoy working with cattle in the Dairy Industry. I can be found in the barn before and after school and have picked up side-jobs in cow fertility and dairy mineral supplement supplies.
MY FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL WAS: Math!
