Jiana came up to Burlington each summer when she was younger from New York City. She fell in love with the area and knew she wanted to eventually live in Vermont. She attended Landmark College in Putney, Vermont and she graduated with her Bachelor’s in Psychology in May 2020. She gained a lot of great experience working with students who have Autism and other learning differences as an RA at Landmark College for 3.5 years even working in a hall strictly for students with Autism. Jiana loves the different interests, strengths (art, design, creativity), and learning styles she discovers when working with these students. 
In her free time, Jiana enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and guinea pigs, and staying in shape by walking/running, surfing/paddleboarding in the summer, and skiing/snowboarding in the winter.
