Alie graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and is currently working toward her M.Ed. in School Counseling here at St. Lawrence University. Alie has worked with multiple programs on campus including the Sustainability Semester, the Center for Civic Engagement and the CSTEP/McNair program.
During the Sustainability Semester, Alie lived with students in a farm house 4 miles from campus. In this capacity, Alie worked with students to explore their sustainability values, develop an intentional community, connect with North Country residents and coordinate hands-on workshops. In the Center for Civic Engagement, she oversaw Community-Based Learning placements at food & farm-related organizations and coordinated the Community Mentor program. Now, as the Interim Counselor for CSTEP, Alie meets regularly with students in order to assist with educational and professional goal setting and to monitor student academic, financial, career, and personal success. In all of her roles, Alie has especially enjoyed forming connections with community partners and building close relationships with students.
Living in the North Country for almost three years, Alie has found a deep appreciation for local food & the farmers who grow it, NCPR, cross country skiing, dinner outings at Jake's, paddling in the Adirondacks and spending time uncovering the rich community that resides here.
