Before becoming a full-time staff member, Norm was a coach, volunteer and trainer for Vermont Adaptive since 2008 and was a contractor for the organization’s capital campaign beginning in 2014. Previously, Norm spent 20 years in a variety of non-profit and adventure industry executive positions around Vermont and the world. He attended the Master’s Program in Outdoor Education at the University of New Hampshire where he focused his research on adventure with people with disabilities. He holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Vermont, where he focused on sustainability and nonprofit management. In his spare time, Norm is an avid skier, sailor, surfer, paddler, fisherman, and outdoor instructor. He makes his home in South Burlington where he lives with his wife, Jenn, and their two Labs, Rudder and Tugboat, and spends as much time on the lakes, waterways, coast, and in the mountains as he can. Originally from Rhode Island, he now considers Vermont home and Southport, Maine, to be his home away from home. Norm is a member of the PSIA/AASI Eastern Division Adaptive Education Staff and holds instructor or instructor trainer certifications in skiing, telemark, paddling, surfing, first aid and sailing.
