Kirsten Nelson, Burke Town School's Administrative Assistant 


Niki Rapkowicz Administrative Assistant

My name is Niki Rapkowicz. I recently located to VT from MA and I am the new administrative assistant at the Burke Town School. I am excited to start this new journey, and especially excited to get to know the school community.  I am currently residing in Orleans with my husband, Jeremy and our dog, Bella. The three of us all enjoy being outside, hiking, and camping. Jeremy and I additionally are avid Boston sports fans!  I spent the past six years working for a behavioral health agency where I took pride in helping to support local families who have a child with behavioral, emotional, or mental health needs. I was privileged to work with the management staff for program development, but most importantly work 1-on-1 with some of these youths in a community setting. It was a job that was challenging but very rewarding! What drew me to VT is the wonderful experience I had completing my undergrad at St. Michael’s College. Between the school setting and playing soccer all four years, it was my first real feeling of a community. More recently, anytime I have visited friends in the NEK, I have also felt that same community feeling. I am proud to call it my new home.  In a professional setting, I am approachable, kind and caring. I love to use humor and joke around with others as a way to connect. I am a hard worker and I look forward to dedicating myself to my new position.  Feel free to approach me and introduce yourself anytime!
