I attended UMass-Amherst. I majored in Sociology and minored in Spanish and Women’s Studies. I chose these studies because I’m interested in learning about people and working with different populations.

How did you get involved in the Independent Living Movement?

My two most rewarding jobs were working with an agency that helped people get on Mass Health and social Security Disability and working as a Caregiver, helping people with health issues stay in their homes

Fun Fact:
  • I ziplined in Costa Rica, upside down.
  • My nickname in high school was “Vig”.
  • I lived in Spain for a year.
Something that may surprise you about me:

When I got married, I kept my maiden name, in honor of my father.
