Director of Parks and Maintenance for the Caribou Parks and Recreation Department since 2001serving prior as a Trails Coordinator from 1994-2001 Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Biology.
As the Director of Parks and Maintenance, my responsibilities include maintaining all of the cities landscape areas, which include the parks, ball fields and soccer fields. Some of my other duties are the maintenance of all the buildings that the Recreation Department has, such as the pool building, park building, the Lion's Community building, the Paul Soucie Memorial Sports Complex and the new Caribou Wellness Center. I also oversee the 100+ miles of recreational trails in our area. As the Director of Parks and Maintenance one of my biggest accomplishments has been the ability to work well with the other departments within the City of Caribou.

As an Americorps Volunteer, I went several trainings and educational workshops within the State that have kept me up to date on the national policies. I was active in Aroostook County in getting an educational program together for snowmobile and ATV groups. I attend many meetings to develop people's interest in volunteering, to develop the Rails to Trails program with Kathy Mazzuchelli, together; we helped develop a multi-million dollar industry for Aroostook County.
-Develop leadership skills
As a Biological Technician, my responsibilities included working with teams in doing forest measurements. The data collected was used for NRCS updates from the 1980 census. Many tools were needed to perform these duties, they included: reading aerial photos, topography maps, using compasses, Global Positioning Systems, measurement tapes and siting estimates for forest canopies. Soil data was gathered for nutrient and organic composition information. This information is very useful when doing wetland determinations.
While a student trainee in the Fort Kent office, I was helpful in communicating with many of the local farmers who were more comfortable in speaking French than English. During three summers of training, I learned to write farm plans, develop and design conservation practices such as: animal waste pits, cull potato pits, heavy use areas, waterways, diversions, drainage systems, nutrient and sediment control structures, shallow wildlife ponds, wildlife planting upland and wetland, pasture and hayland management. To design most practices we developed topography surveys using transit or level. Perform annual Food Security Annua status reviews, write information articles, and speak to small groups about conservation and Farm Bill needs.
