Community Impact Manager
My role as Community Impact Manager is to be out learning about the community and to support the efforts to make sure all people in Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties meet their full potential.
I love being part of the community and working with community members from youth to older adults. It is such a privilege for me to witness the strengths and care that folks bring to solve problems for their community and an honor to be invited to join in the effort.
While I grew up in Wolcott, Vermont, I carry my love of Vermont and community with me wherever my feet land. I believe that most community problems can be solved by bringing our neighbors together to find the best solution. I love working with the United Way and all the partners across county lines!
