Created in the woods of Northern Vermont where the cows are plentiful and the people are sparse, I eventually decided that I needed to experience something new. So, in 2012 I made the journey all the way down to Boston, Massachusetts to fetch a degree in Advertising and experience life in the “big city”. It wasn’t far, but the culture shock was huge. This process of living in and exploring a new environment helped me rediscover my love for writing and observing how individuals interact with each other and their surroundings.
An intense love for denim, burritos and riding my bicycle around town was also developed in these years.
Now back in the beautiful state of Vermont, the bicycle is stowed away in the barn and I’m the very proud owner of a car payment. Though, I’ve learned that a place where gorgeous views, maple creemees and locally made cheese are in abundance is never a bad place to be (especially if you’re working for an organization focused on making the world a better place)!
