Tell us a bit about your story!

I grew up in Maine and went to college in Pennsylvania. After graduation, I decided to return and work at O'Maine Studios for a bit before transitioning into the International Education industry. I've always loved food and run a successful Instagram, Portland Eats ME, and continue to do so alongside my full-time position. The travel bug enticed me to work in International Education programs after my study abroad in Amsterdam. I was so fortunate to find something in Maine that I find rewarding and all my colleagues are just as passionate about the work we do!
