I am a native Vermonter and am very excited to be back in the state I love! I went to St. Joseph School in Burlington as I grew up, so Catholic Education is very close to my heart. From there I graduated from Colchester High School in 2009. I was thrilled to move to Florida to attend the University of Tampa and graduated with my Elementary Education Degree in 2013. While at UT I was president of the Education Honors Society, and was a research assistant to the department head. We researched cyber bullying, developed a middle school anti-bullying program, and had our research article published. After completing work on the research and article, our team of seven traveled to Finland with the department head to research the number one country for education.
