Lives In South Portland

A Maine native, I didn't grow up in Portland, but I've lived here longer than anywhere else so I consider myself "from" Portland. I've lived Down East, in Central Maine and on the border in Jackman. I'm a dual-degree alumni from the University of Southern Maine and administrated the Women and Gender Studies Program for thirteen years. In 2016, I joined the team at MarketingProfs as a Marketing Manager. My volunteerism includes being a steering committee member for the Gaslight League (a social club organized to benefit Victoria Mansion, a National Historic Landmark) and a Victoria Mansion Trustee. In my spare time I plan, throw and attend parties, organize a book club and design costumes.

Why did you choose Portland? Came for college and never left.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Changes with the seasons! Winter: the Bramhall Pub & the Bar of Chocolate. Spring: Baxter Blv. Summer: Tooling through the Old Port on foot or on my pink Vespa. Fall: Deering Oaks Park and the North Point.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Hop on the Vespa and head across the bridge to Commerical Street on a Saturday afternoon. Find easy parking in the city's numerous two wheel-only spots & grab a drink with friends listening to live music on the Portland Lobster Co. patio. Ride up to Congress Street for a meal at Emilitsa later on (amazing Greek food, even better service) and then head back down the hill to Fore Street for a little Gorgeous Gelato for dessert. The next day get up early for bagels (to beat the crowds) at Scratch Baking Co. in South Portland.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Walking down the street! Just by walking around I bump into tons people I know–coworkers, friends, out of towners–Portland is the biggest small town, its wonderful.
