What do you most enjoy about your job?
I love that I get to be involved in every aspect of the business. In one day, I could be talking to our advertisers about new services we are offering, working with our creative director on selecting a cover for the next issue, discussing story ideas with our editorial team, going scouting with the editor of Maine Home+Design, and planning our next big event. I feel very fortunate that I get to work with everyone on the team in some capacity.
What is a lifelong goal of yours?
I want to learn to play the fiddle. I’m from Newfoundland where music is an integral and daily part of life. I played violin when I was very little but I didn’t continue with it, and it’s something I would love to be able to do now. And this year, I’m going to start!
Who is your favorite Maine artist?
I really love the work of artist Julie Cyr. She paints scenes that include animals and young girls that are both haunting and gentle at the same time. They are a little dark, but they draw you into the painting to see what else is going on.
