Why are you attending GroundSwell Institute:

"After graduating from UVM in the spring of 2014 I have only been skiing with my national team. I felt it was time to combine skiing with some education. Bob and Cody approached me with their project and it sounded very interesting, so I decided to join GroundSwell Institute in the spring of 2017. For me it’s challenging to do something besides skiing, since my time is limited with training and traveling. The GroundSwell institute is a great fit because it is flexible while giving hands on experiences."  

Explain your experience working through GroundSwell’s content and how (if) you can apply what you have learned so far:

"At GroundSwell, we are working through five areas of content, which are very relevant and link together well. It has taught me both how to evaluate businesses and how you can improve them. My experience so far with GroundSwell has been very motivating, and I am very engaged to work on the projects Bob and Cody have set up. I will be able to apply what I have learned when I eventually work, or invest in a business."
