I joined Vermont Tech as faculty in the fall of 2005. I am currently a professor in the Construction Management department (CM). I hold an advanced degree in Practical Arts Education from the University of Vermont, as well as extensive construction, business, and real estate investment experience. I own investment property and have managed and participated on construction projects ranging from $100K to $115M. I have participated in all phases of construction as a skilled worker, teacher, Superintendent, and Project Manager. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Adult, Technical, Vocational, and Extension Education from the University of Vermont. I have 27 years of combined teaching experience in secondary, technical, adult, and post-secondary institutions across Vermont, including South Burlington High School, Community College of Vermont, University of Vermont, and Vermont Technical College.
While on sabbatical during academic year 2017-18, I was the Special Projects Coordinator for Whiting-Turner Construction for the Miller Hospital Project at the University of Vermont. This $115M project created 130 new hospital rooms at the UVM Medical Center. My responsibilities also included the Preconstruction Services Contract for the Patrick/Forbush/Gutterson construction project.
I was raised in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, attending Danville High School and St. Johnsbury Academy. I am a lifelong and avid learner.
I have never forgotten my first visit to a college campus, which was here at Vermont Tech.
