How did you first become connected with WNC?

I first became a neighbor to Wolfe’s Neck Center in 2004, after moving to Maine, while renting down on Lower Flying Point. In 2011, my husband and I returned to the neighborhood and purchased a home together on the same peninsula, intent on raising our family down the road from the farm. Our daughter and son have grown up on the trails, in the barns and fields, and at the farm café and store, and have been to farm camp plus countless farm and member events over the years.

How do you hope to best contribute to WNC’s development through your tenure on the Board?

I am honored to give back to WNC, building upon our longtime family membership. As a marketing professional, I hope to support the already excellent marketing communications efforts of the Center, helping to ensure the local community and broader audience are aware of and invested in all happening here. I also hope to partner with the team to drive forward the strategic vision of WNC, building on my passion for the outdoors, land conservation, sustainable agriculture, and youth education to help shape the future of WNC.

What is your favorite thing about WNC?

My memories of time spent with my children and my husband at WNC—on the Farm Loop Trail, hiking and building fairy houses and forts, at the picnic tables at the farm café, indulging in ice cream or wood-fired pizza, on the dirt roads, biking the two miles from our home to visit our barnyard friends or friends and family camping on the bay, in the fields, picking pumpkins, raspberries, and blueberries. The sense of peacefulness and simple human delights the farm elicits bring us back, again and again.
