What do you/did you do for a living?

I have been the Executive Director of Friends of Bass River since January 6, 2020. In this role, I created and direct the upper Bass River Headwaters Restoration project, oversee seven volunteer water testing teams, identify areas of need along the river and liaise with town, state, and federal agencies. (among the many hats I wear). I was previously the Sales Manager for Bayside Expo Center in South Boston, and Operations Manager of the Volvo Around the World Sailboat race, where I built out and managed operation of the on-shore race village. Exciting times as Boston welcomed 315,000 visitors over a two-week period. Read More...

What do you/did you do for a living?

As I started my career I worked in hospitality in front desk, food & beverage and hotel supply roles on a Dude Ranch in Arizona, in Colorado, in Key Largo and eventually back on Cape Cod.

Currently I am the Revenue Manager for The Lighthouse Inn. During the season I act as a Controller and in the Winter the job entails looking at our value proposition, analyzing the competitive landscape and thinking about how we can improve our short term and long-term value proposition. I am also involved in the long-term planning and marketing side of the business. We are blessed to be on the waterfront and are considered a laid back, casual family friendly resort. It’s a place where young families can relax, play, and live their best life. Read More...
