I graduated from the University of Florida with a BA in history. Most recently I have started the MBA in Marketing and Communications at Fitchburg State University. I also have owned, operated, and sold two successful restaurants. I won the best cafe in Florida by Florida Trend Magazine in 2000. I was a founding member of the Windham Grows, Vermont Farm and Food Small Business Accelerator, and I worked with the Restaurant Apprenticeship program. I have also taught high school and middle school for sixteen years. I am starting this year as a Business Instructor at the Windham Regional Career Center. I am very excited to start this new chapter in my professional career.
