Professional summary:
I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2017 with a bachelor of science in environmental and natural resource economics and a minor in marine biology. Prior to joining Virtual DBS and while in school I worked mostly in the service industry from Narragansett to Nantucket and from bars to hotels. I really did it all, from serving coffee to industrial laundry.

I have been at Virtual DBS since:

Best thing about working here:
Getting a chance to learn something new every day and getting to work near the beach, of course.

Hobbies, activities, or interests:
Most times of the year you can find me in Narragansett Bay floating on my surfboard. When the waves are not very good I will be relaxing on the beach or getting a good hike in. I enjoy everything outdoors and I also love travel.

Interesting story or fact about me:
The first time I ever rode a motorcycle I popped a wheelie by accident and fell off. I then fixed that bike, taught myself to ride it properly, and rode it 6,000 miles.
