Tell us a bit about your story!
I moved to Maine for a job at The Roux Institute in 2021. I had only been here a handful of times and had enjoyed it so I figured, "Why not?!" and now I never want to leave! I met my partner here, have fallen in love with the place, and feel deeply committed to continue making Maine an amazing place to live and work in.
