Molly joined the MITA staff in fall 2019. A native Mainer, she grew up in the Midcoast region, exploring the islands and coastline from a young age. She received her BA in Anthropology from Bard College, and has worked in the conservation and education fields since 2006, including a several year stint at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago. Molly got her first kayak as a teenager and has been an enthusiastic boater ever since. Most recently she is enjoying learning the challenges and joys of stand up paddle boarding on the Maine coast.
