About me


I’ve lived in Woolwich for 35 years, and am serving in my third term on the Woolwich Selectboard. I currently teach history at the University of Maine at Farmington, but I’ve also worked as a printer, a retail store and office coordinator, a magazine production assistant, and a steelworker. I am also part owner of my husband’s wooden boat building and repair business in Small Point, Phippsburg. I am a volunteer with the Woolwich Historical Society, a Trustee of the Patten Free Library in Bath, a docent and secretary of Maine’s First Ship, and the newly formed Bath Area Age-Friendly and Livability group.
