I am the new Residence Director for the Vermont State University Johnson campus. My previous experience in the residential department was being a Resident Assistant (RA) for five semesters. This taught me how to conduct meetings, floor programs, and build campus connections for myself and students. Other experience is getting to work with Upward Bound, a federal program for first generation/low-income high school students. This program partners with AmeriCorps and provided service hours towards my time as a Resident Hall Director.
