Jake Richards

Castleton University 

B.A. History

Jake joins us all the way from his home state of Vermont, where he has spent most of his 31 years.  After graduating from Castleton University with a B.A. in History, he spent 9 years in manufacturing as a forklift driver.  During that time, he went back to school for an A.S. in Environmental Science from the Community College of Vermont so that he could pursue his true passions: nature, science, and education.  Jake is an avid outdoorsman and musician who spends his free time hiking, fishing, reading, and playing old country tunes on whatever beat-up instrument he can get his hands on.
