Other than riding the school bus, my first use of public transportation was using the trains and buses in France during my semester abroad.
What is something unique about you?
I live on an organic vegetable farm in Brentwood where I drive tractors, manage a small orchard, and repair stone walls.
What is one thing you love about your career?
I love knowing that my work has improved access to health care and quality of life for seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout the greater Seacoast.
What is one thing everyone should know about COAST?
COAST is a non-profit agency; we work to provide the most useful, reliable service at the fairest cost possible.
