Favorite Place

Much of my life I’ve been fortunate enough to live in inspirational settings. From Chautauqua Lake in the New York Southern Tier to Lake Champlain, I appreciate the natural experience a pastoral farm or expansive mountain ranges can create. That’s why one of my favorite places is Shelburne Farms, a 1,400-acre working farm and National Historic Landmark located on the shores of Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont. Professionally, I enjoy its national significance as it’s a preserved example of an ornamental farm, designed in the late 19th century by Frederick Law Olmstead. Personally, it’s a place for me to take my young daughters, enriching their lives with nature, culture, and design as we learn through the Farm’s nonprofit education center and environmental stewardship.
