Development Director

Erin Wessel

Erin, her husband Tim, and their energetic three and a half year old Declan reside in downtown Brattleboro. They are strong advocates for the Brattleboro community and love to explore their town’s many local features.

Prior to joining Hilltop, Erin has spent her entire career working in the nonprofit sector, in various roles, around the country from wilderness conservation in Portland, OR, to entrepreneurship in Durham, NC, and most recently in the field of mental health and addiction in Brattleboro, VT. Her varied interests have led her to the Hilltop community, where she is excited to get to know the families and teachers and see how impactful the education is for each child at Montessori.

In her spare time, (which with a toddler seems fleeting at times), Erin enjoys spending time outside hiking, running, or being by the ocean, as well as reading, and practicing ashtanga yoga.
