— Paige Heverly, Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator

Paige Heverly joined Vital Communities in 2017 as the Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator. Hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, she moved to Vermont in 2011 and earned a joint BA in Renewable Energy and Ecological Design and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. After completing her Master of Energy Regulation and Law from Vermont Law School, Paige worked in energy efficiency consulting in Portland, Oregon. Her love of local food systems, the White River, and the Green Mountains brought her back to the Upper Valley to work on regional issues with localized solutions. Paige is passionate about closing ecological loops and treating waste as food. In her free time, she enjoys baking homemade English muffins, weeding her garden, and writing letters to her pen pals.

Sarah Brock joined Vital Communities in 2013 as our Energy Program Manager. Through her work Sarah provides support for our region’s 35+ local energy committees and 20+ businesses engaged in Vital Communities’ Corporate Energy Work Group. In 2014, Sarah led the launch of Solarize Upper Valley, a program that has since engaged 23 towns in helping hundreds of Upper Valley homes switch to solar energy. Prior to joining the Vital Communities team, Sarah was an Environmental Philanthropy Associate with the High Meadows Fund, a supporting organization of the Vermont Community Foundation. At High Meadows, Sarah led the development of a statewide network of transportation efficiency stakeholders. Years later, the Vermont Transportation Stakeholders Network is now supported by the Vermont Agency of Transportation and coordinated by Vital Communities’ own Bethany Fleishman. Sarah holds a joint degree in architecture and environmental studies from Middlebury College.
