I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up on dairy farms in Massachusetts prior to the Smith family recruiting my dad to come to Wolfe’s Neck Farm.  His passion for organic farming and sustainable agriculture were a perfect fit for the farm. My most formative years were spent working and learning while receiving many life lessons on Wolfe’s Neck.

The next forty years passed in a heartbeat between college, advanced vocation education while in the optical and laser technology industries. My fire service career began as a Firefighter/EMT in Lebanon, NH then in Portland, ME and finally as Fire Chief in Freeport, ME. My interest in Firefighter Health and Safety brought me to On Target Challenge, as project manger, where my team developed, marketed and facilitated physical fitness based competitions within the fire service community throughout the United States and several countries around the world.

For the past six years I’ve worked at Wolfe’s Neck Farm, now Wolfe’s Neck Center, assisting with facility upgrades, new building projects and ongoing care and maintenance of existing properties. I am excited to join the Wolfe’s Neck Center team on a permanent basis and look forward to our future growth as a leader in agriculture and the environment.
