Dana is relatively new to living on MDI but had been visiting every opportunity for the last 3 dozen years before putting down permanent roots in Southwest Harbor. Her past work experiences were centered around library work and business enterprises, however she is passionate about being part of a supportive community and assisting those on MDI as Island Connection's Volunteer and Program Coordinator. When she is not working she loves the great outdoors, mushroom hunting, music, science, and cooking.
Doreen began working at Island Connections in July of 2015. Prior to joining Island Connections, she served as the Membership Director at the Mount Desert Island YMCA.
