DALTON, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management, a locally based investment advisory firm, announces that Berkshire native Nichole Dupont has joined the firm's growing team of investment and business professionals.

Dupont is a freelance writer, editor and communications consultant whose work has appeared in multiple regional and national publications including Berkshire Magazine, The Take, Rural Intelligence, the Berkshire Eagle, Newsday and the Huffington Post. She has also helped businesses and nonprofits — Simon's Rock college, Emma Willard School, the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, and many others— "find" their stories and bring this unique content to their branding vision, as well as websites, local and national media, and other public platforms.

"In order to accomplish our mission of helping people lead spectacular lives, we have to let them know everything we can do for them," BMM founder and CEO Allen Harris said. "Everyone comes to us for investment advice, but we do so much more. Nichole worked with us as a consultant for nearly three years, and she sees the passion we have for what we do. We always work well together, and seeing that she really gets us, we wanted her to join the BMM family."



Dupont earned her bachelor's in history from Clark University and has done extensive post-graduate work at Yale University (East Asian languages and literature) and Middlebury College (M.A. English). She lives in Sheffield with her two teenagers, Anna and Lucian. When she isn't combing over content or writing about local businesses (and food), she is an avid boxer — alongside her daughter - and trains Brazilian jiu jitsu with her son. She is also an extensive traveler and dabbles in multiple languages.

This is BMM's fourth hire in the last year, reflecting its growth as a result of the continued demands from local investors, including and especially business owners and decision makers, who want to make a lasting positive impact in the community.

Dalton COVID Numbers Droppings, Schools Reopened

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

DALTON, Mass. — Over the past two weeks, the town of Dalton has only seen five new cases of COVID-19 and the Board of Health on Monday said case counts are going in a positive direction.

"I think because we are organized with the three large scale vaccination sites for the county, and the public health infrastructure and the health care community collaborated on it, we have been able to get a leg up on other parts of the commonwealth," Berkshire Health Systems Dr. Daniel Doyle reported.

Twenty percent of Berkshire County's population has received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination as of Thursday and around 8 percent have received the second dose. There were more than 3,000 Berkshire County residents vaccinated on Saturday.

The board estimated that the majority of residents over 75 years of age who wish to be vaccinated have been. On Jan. 27, the Dalton Council on Aging began assisting elders without computer or internet access and Director Kelly Pizzi said about 300 people per business day had been helped to secure an appointment. 

Dalton currently utilizes the central Berkshire vaccination site at Berkshire Community College because it would reportedly not be efficient to hold smaller-scale vaccination clinics given the extremely cold storage temperature requirements of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.  

The Pfizer vaccine has to be kept at minus-70 degrees Celsius and the Moderna can be kept slightly warmer.
