“I've called Vermont my home for the last 23 years and have loved every minute of it!” she said. “When I'm not being a school counselor you might find me gardening, experimenting with recipes (I love to cook!), hiking, doing yoga, skiing, enjoying the beach, watching movies, going out to see live music or trying to get better at playing the guitar. I am so happy to be here at Harwood and I appreciate everyone who has made me feel so comfortable and at home and I'm looking forward to continuing to have a great year!”
