Development Director

Cristina Piergentili

Cristina is a lifelong Vermonter. She grew up in Dummerston and eventually left for college at the University of Vermont, where she got her degree in Animal Science. She stayed in the Burlington area for 12 years where she ran her own business as a dog trainer and dog walker. In 2022 she returned to Southern VT with her husband Hayden to be closer to family with the arrival of their son Charlie. Cristina grew up with many people who attended Hilltop and felt a pull to the school when she returned to Southern VT. When the time came to consider a career change she jumped at the opportunity to join the community.

In her free time you can find Cristina outside…mostly trail running, hiking, camping and enjoying the outdoors with her family.
