Angela (she/her) brings 25 years of experience working in land conservation in Maine to her role as Land Trust Program Director at MCHT. Most recently she worked for 15 years as the executive director of the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust.

Prior to that, she worked as the Government and Community Relations Coordinator for The Nature Conservancy’s Maine Chapter and managed two successful campaigns to pass $50 million and $35 million public land bonds in Maine as a joint employee of MCHT and TNC.

She is a graduate of Bates College and studied ecology in the Brazilian rain forest. She grew up enjoying the outdoors in Turner and Auburn and currently resides in Topsham with her husband (having recently attained “empty nester” status after fledging their four children).

Angela has worked at MCHT since 2023.

On land conservation: “I was incredibly lucky to grow up in Maine in a family that valued time spent outdoors. Countless family memories center around fishing, canoeing, swimming, snowmobiling, and hiking. My heart is grounded in a deep connection to the woods, farms, coastline, and waters of Maine. As I grew up and saw beloved outdoor spaces, farms, and trails being developed and no trespassing signs becoming commonplace, I knew I wanted to work to protect Maine’s natural areas and access to them for everyone.”

On the job: Angela’s primary responsibilities revolve around connecting, supporting, and helping to amplify the work of Maine’s land conservation community. To do this she manages the Maine Land Trust Network, MCHT’s public policy work, and coordinates the many other ways that MCHT staff and programs contribute to the greater conservation movement in Maine.
