Christy is a seventh generation Vermonter and a graduate of the former Whitingham High School. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Theatre Arts from The University of Vermont and a Master’s Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College. She was hired at BDCC in September of 2018 and is thrilled to be back in her old stomping grounds, working with and connecting students to educational and career opportunities. Prior to her work at BDCC, she spent almost a decade leading a team of educators at BEST Hospitality Training in Boston, MA, a workforce development organization dedicated to preparing and placing low-to-no income residents in high paying jobs with career lattices and a path to the middle class. While there, she designed and authored curricula that resulted in an articulation agreement with Bunker Hill Community College, allowing graduates of her program to receive significant college credit toward degrees in Hospitality Management. She also has an extensive background working as an educator in public schools and non-profits throughout New England, most notably as a middle school special education teacher at Whitingham School and as a lead teaching artist at Boston University’s Wheelock Family Theatre. She is a foodie, amateur blogger and photographer, and she loves live music and theatre. She lives with her four year old cat, Scout and her 46 year old turtle, Lester.
