InfoI have lived in this area since I was age one. My parents brought our family from suburban Chicago, IL to Corinth where I lived throughout my childhood. I graduated from Waits River Valley School and Oxbow High School. At the University of Vermont I earned degrees in History and Geology. At UVM I was a member of the Varsity Field Hockey and Softball teams. I also played intramural basketball and ice hockey.

While at UVM I met my husband, John Hanzas, a Burlington native, and after we were married we moved back to the area. We have three daughters, Leah, Rebekah and Schyler and our �fourth child� Nina, a Siberian Husky.

I earned a Secondary Science teaching certificate through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute and taught science at Waits River Valley and Oxbow High School. After my children were born I remained active in education by coaching Varsity Field Hockey and Softball.

I currently serve on the Bradford Merchant�s Association and Bradford Workforce Investment boards. I serve on the Bradford Elementary School Improvement team and do fundraising for the Bradford Conservation Commission.

I am a volunteer coach with Bradford Youth Sports for soccer, basketball, skiing and softball. I help run Book Center at Bradford Elementary School, a literacy support program for kids in Kindergarten through grade 2.

I work part time for the family business, Copeland Furniture.

I am a founding member and Co-Chair of the Fundraising Committee of the Vermont Democratic Party. A life-long Democrat, I became active in the party after the election of 2000. I was disappointed with the outcome of that presidential election, and felt the only way to stem that tide was to infuse Vermont�s Democratic Party with the means to offer a political alternative. I was an active supporter of Dean for America and continue to contribute to its daughter-organization Democracy for America.

I believe Democracy will only work when it is government of the people, for the people and by the people. We need to take our country back.

I will work for equal rights and compassion for ALL people, decent jobs in a sustainable economy, excellent schools, tight budgets, streamlined government, and affordable health care. Read more about where I stand on the Issues.
