MONTPELIER — Marybeth Christie Redmond of Essex and Emilie Kornheiser of Brattleboro have joined the Vermont Commission on Women, appointed by Vermont Speaker of the House Mitzi Johnson.
Redmond serves as a partner in the Vermont Story Lab project, training nonprofit communicators to weave storytelling through the fabric of their organizations to increase impact and reach. For six years she taught journalism at St. Michael’s College and also co-founded a program for Vermont’s incarcerated women called “writing inside VT.” Redmond also directed the development and communications efforts at Vermont Works for Women, a nonprofit organization training vulnerable women for meaningful, livable wage employment.
Kornheiser is early childhood action plan director with Building Bright Futures, and recently with Promise Communities for the State of Vermont. She supports communities to identify and achieve shared outcomes for young children and families. She has worked overseas promoting democracy and supporting small business development, and started her own small business in Brattleboro.
