Kerri Duquette-Hoffman is honored to serve as the Executive Director of WomenSafe. Her roots in the movement of work against intersectional gender-based violence began early as a student volunteer, and she has been dedicated to this work professionally since 2002. During this time, she has also greatly enjoyed teaching social work and computer science as adjunct faculty at The University of Vermont, Community College of Vermont and Castleton State College. She received her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Vermont, where her research focused on supportive and effective work with elders, and working within the health and mental health systems. She is a mom, and a hearty Vermonter who likes to meet the challenge at hand.
