Cannella studied Sociology and African Studies at St. Lawrence University before receiving her master's degree in teaching English as a Second Language from St. Michael's College. Studying abroad in Kenya as an undergraduate student piqued her interest in international education, travel and service. While abroad, Cannella worked at Kakuma Refugee Camp for the Lutheran World Federation, specifically with women and youth from Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. Upon coming to Vermont, she worked for two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA at the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington, Vermont where her job was to work with members of the refugee and immigrant population.
