It was very hard for me to talk to my family and open up to them. I started working at Sentinel Farms when I was 15. I loved working with the horses and cattle. I also worked in the on-campus general store. I wasn’t very thrilled by working in the store because I was so shy but it really helped me slowly come out of my shell by talking to strangers as they came in. Also by working with the horses and sharing a connection with them made me start to open up to Kerry without really realizing it. My goal is to help kids and young adults have the same opportunities as I had by having a safe place to learn and work with animals and learn many skills by working on an active farm. I graduated from Mt. Abraham Union High School and The Hannaford Career Center’s Agribusiness Program in 2012.

I now work at Homeward Bound, Addison County Humane Society. I have been there for almost 2 years. I don’t think I would be where I am today if it wasn’t for Kerry Kurt and Unbound Grace.
