“I’m a Maine girl! I grew up in Ellsworth, close to Acadia National Park, and spent most of childhood on Deer Isle with my family. I know how spectacular this coast is and am grateful to be able to call it home. I enjoy playing outside with my family and friends every chance I get and love that my work helps ensure everyone can do the same.”

“My well-being arises from my connections to people and the natural world. Walking at Thorne Head, swimming to Crow Island, paddling with my partner, boogie boarding with my kids—all wake me up to the preciousness of life. Land trusts in Maine create opportunities for these connections to thrive and for qualities like wonder, awe, humility and compassion to inform the way I move through the world.”
