Major(s): 
Economics

Internship
Shoreham Town Government, Shoreham, VT

Duties
I assist the Shoreham Select Board with economic development projects. Most recently, I led a feasibility study on municipal solar opportunities, and I have worked on town financing as well.

Most Significant Experience
My most rewarding experience has been my role in our study of solar for the community and town buildings.  I went from knowing little about solar power to having an in-depth knowledge, and I have gained tremendous real-world experience through meeting with solar companies, researching loan options, and presenting the information to town officials.  It has been an invaluable opportunity becoming so involved in a project that could directly impact the community.
