On land conservation: “I’m a Maine girl! I grew up in Ellsworth, close to Acadia National Park, and spent most of childhood on Deer Isle with my family. I know how spectacular this coast is and am grateful to be able to call it home. I enjoy playing outside with my family and friends every chance I get and love that my work helps ensure everyone can do the same.”
On the job: Kristen is the Associate Director of Marketing & Community Relations. She strongly believes in conserving our coast, and keeping it open to all. She fosters meaningful engagement between the organization and donors and showcases the work they make possible, as well as introducing new audiences to the work we do along the Maine coast.
