I myself am a VTC nursing graduate! I came to nursing after I had graduated from UVM with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science/Pre-Vet. The summer that I graduated from UVM I was lucky enough to spend time in Tanzania, Africa. My experiences there opened my eyes to the health care field and I decided that I wanted to pursue my nursing degree. Prior to working as a nurse I worked on farming sustainability and animal husbandry and then also in early childhood education. Since obtaining my nursing license I have gained experience in the long-term care setting, adult medicine and pediatrics. I began working towards my Master’s Degree in Nursing Education in 2015 and in 2017, I was lucky enough to begin working as a clinical instructor for Vermont Technical College. I am now working as full time faculty with the second year students (ADNs). I also work per diem at the University of Vermont Medical Center. In my spare time, you will find me at the barn with my horses. My husband and I are also avid skiers and love being outside as much as we can.
