Sarah Waterman originally hails from Vermont, a state with a historically modest risk profile. She graduated summa cum laude from the University at Albany with a degree in public policy, which she immediately put to use helping out as a spontaneous volunteer after Hurricane Katrina. She continued her research in disaster preparedness and public health at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill as a Weiss Fellow. Her capstone paper focused on community level planning strategies for people with special medical needs. When Tropical Storm Irene slammed into Vermont in August of 2012, causing the worst flooding and damage since the 1921 floods, Waterman built and launched VTResponse.com, a social media based approach towards immediate flood response and recovery. With 50,000 hits by the second day, thousands of volunteers connected to those in need and the flexibility and adaptability afforded by social media, VTResponse played a major role in the recovery of Vermont post-Irene.Â
