I was born and raised in Connecticut. After graduating high school I took a break from school and moved to Orlando, Florida, to work at Walt Disney World. I had the time of my life there, but college was calling and I moved back home to study education. I moved to Portland, Maine, in 2011 and fell in love with this beautiful coastal city. Even though I have grown up in New England, I have never been fond of winter but the Maine summers make it all worth it. I love being out on Casco Bay kayaking, paddle boarding, and of course spending time on friend’s boats. My career path here in Maine started as a paralegal for an elder law firm. I enjoyed the law field and getting to work with some incredible attorneys. After many years at the firm, I felt I was ready for a new adventure and turned to the boating industry, where I now spend my days on the working waterfront of Portland!
