Kristen believes that watershed-scale thinking is a powerful tool to connect people with the land and build community resiliency. She has worked as an environmental educator teaching experiential science to students of all ages at The Wild Center, Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center, The Appalachian Mountain Club and The Ecology School. She comes to VYCC most recently from the Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District where she planned and implemented water quality and wildlife habitat projects throughout the Winooski watershed. She is excited to continue connecting people with each other and the land through hands-on projects at VYCC. For Kristen, a perfect summer day includes canoeing on a pond, spotting birds and swimming. A perfect winter day starts with a hot cup of tea and some quiet time knitting followed by a snowy cross country ski adventure.
