Rochelle has been connected to Hilltop for many years as her partner Jessica worked with Paul and Finn as a middle school teacher. Rochelle grew up in a small town on the narrow tip of Long Island where her family ran a small summer motel. She landed in Putney 25 years ago while earning her Masters in Environmental Education at Antioch New England University. She worked in outdoor, environmental and humane education near and far. She later earned an MLS and has worked as a Librarian and Educational Technology Integration Specialist in public schools for 15 years.
Her older son Morgon is a true Hilltopper, and currently starting his first year in the Middle School. In her free time, she likes to read, mountain bike, xc ski, paddle and explore New England.
