Heather B: Bringing A World of Communications to Vermont

June 21st, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh



Heather is the tall one in the middle of this game of "What time is it Mr. Fox?"  Besides being an English teacher to these children in Tanzania, Heather is a social media junkie, and  lover of all things outdoors.

Heather B. is a Brattleboro native who has recently returned to the area to join the Vermont Woods Studios marketing team. She earned her BS in Mass Communication at Champlain College, where she gained a passion for promoting sustainability through her work in communications.  


Other than her obvious talents in marketing and public relations, Heather's resume grabbed our attention when we saw that she spent her spring break doing a service project in Nicaragua assisting in sustainable community development, as Dennis said, "rather than partying in Fort Lauderdale".

Heather completed a summer service trip in Tanzania as well, teaching school children English and participating in many  projects to enhance the community's quality of life.  She did somehow manage to fit a Spring Break trip to Hilton Head in addition to these altruistic excursions so we're relieved to know that Heather likes to have a little fun sometimes, too.  I think she'll fit right in.


Bye, Bye Shannon

Shannon (right) and me walking off a very big Going Away Lunch of Tacos and Mango Juice

Today we have the bittersweet task of saying goodbye to Shannon.  She's been answering your phone calls and emails, working with our craftspeople to ensure your furniture is built to spec, arranging the shipping and delivery of your furniture and generally jumping through whatever hoops are necessary to make things go smoothly for you.


But now Shannon is off to another adventure and will be bringing her talents to the Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition, working with teens and adults to prevent substance abuse.

We're sorry to see her go, but wish Shannon all the best in her new job. 

Just so you don't worry about your orders that may be in crafting or shipping, I will let you know that Shannon's done an excellent job of training Heather G who will step into her job here at Vermont Woods Studios.  Heather is backed up by Douglas, Kendall and myself so hopefully, between the four of us we'll make this transition seamlessly for you.

Once again, we'd like to thank Shannon for all her hard work and fine contributions to our company.  Come back and join us for Taco Wednesdays, Shannon!
