About Me

Taking a step back from running for office….for now

A third-generation alum of the Essex School System, I graduated EJHS in 1986 and received my Bachelors in Agricultural Economics from the University of Vermont in 1991 .  I married Sandi (Hughes) Drury of Canaan, VT in January 2007, and we have three sons: Riley, Tanner, & Jacob.   

            I retired from the Vermont Army National Guard in June 2021 as a Lieutenant Colonel, serving 36 years in various positions including, but not limited to: Mobilization Readiness Officer, Deputy Regimental Commander, and Battalion Commander.  I deployed twice, the first in Afghanistan as an Embedded Trainer with the Afghan National Army, the second in Iraq as a MEDEVAC (Helicopter) Company Commander.

            Our family resides in Essex, I work for Champlain Valley Weatherization in Colchester.  My hobbies include beekeeping, maple sugaring, and hunting.
