How do you spend your time outside of work?
I love spending time in Maine’s beautiful outdoors! In the summer you can find me hiking and camping around the state or teeing off at one of Maine’s 100+ golf courses. In the winter I’m shredding Sugarloaf. As a 21 year loafer and a former instructor, I couldn’t imagine spending my winter weekends anywhere else!
Who is your favorite Maine “celebrity”?
Patrick Dempsey is my favorite Maine celebrity, although some may call it a cop-out because he’s one of the highest profile Maine “celebrities”, he’s a sugarloafer and a dedicated philanthropist. Oh, and he’s sooo McDreamy!
What do you think makes someone a true Mainer?
I like to describe Mainers as the friendliest introverts you’ll ever meet. We’re often forgotten on our northeastern appendage of the US, only bordering a single state, and have learned to keep to ourselves in our self-sufficient way, but when out-of-staters do come to visit, a Mainer will bend over backwards to show you around. A true Mainer takes deep pride in their state while remaining humble and sharing everything we have to offer.
