Rachel Shields Ebersole


Having fallen in love with Vermont in 2013 (and getting in a decent 5-year stint in Woodstock VT), Rachel is glad to be back in New England, with a toddler in tow. (Three cats were also acquired during her time away.) 

Being a parent makes it hard to have hobbies, but Rachel and her family love checking out slightly perplexing community events (they still talk about the legendary Pancake Breakfast and Experimental Balloon Festival discovered in Post Mills) and walking to the library and/or bakery. 

She knows all about what it's like to be new, and is excited to help you get connected!
