Her prior experience includes developing brand strategies for financial services; working for WGBH, Boston’s public television and radio stations; and development and membership work for the Portland Museum of Art and the Children’s Museum of Maine. She and her Board of Directors developed and launched the creative place making project, Art All Around, to paint the Sprague Energy tanks in South Portland. She has most recently brought the Maine Center for Creativity’s resources to developing the Maine Network of Innovation and Creativity, an online and in-person network designed to connect talent and business, and Developing Creative Intelligence, a corporate training program to help business leaders incorporate a culture of innovation.
