Join us in January for this free event! Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A. Anna Nasset is a survivor, a victim, a writer, an artist, an activist, a speaker, and the owner of Stand Up Resources.

Anna is an award-winning international speaker on the subject of stalking and gender-based violence. As a victim/survivor of stalking for more than a decade, Anna has firsthand experience of how to identify and respond to stalking. She is one of the very few people who can speak openly about her experience after the man who stalked her received the maximum sentence for aggravated felony stalking, ten years in prison, in 2019. This is one of the longest-known sentences for stalking in USA history.

She has trained thousands of professionals, students, and military members on the importance of recognizing stalking, getting help, and advocating for oneself and others.

Anna is a board member of EVAWI and the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce. She hosts a podcast, “The Mend” (sponsored by the Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services), which focuses on topics and services to support crime victims. She resides in the Green Mountains of Vermont with her 3-legged chihuahua Dolly Parton.

Safety Tip of the Day: Turkey Fryers

On Thanksgiving day alone, an estimated 1,160 home cooking fires were reported to U.S fire departments in 2021.

Turkey fryers should not be used under a garage, deck, breezeway, porch, barn or any structure that can catch fire.

Frozen, or partially frozen turkeys, will cause hot oil to splatter or produce hot steam, which leads to burns.
