Allison is a native Mainer with a passion for serving others and has made herself right at home at Island Connections. After getting her degree in healthcare and working with laboratory animals, she has found her calling as Transportation/Office Administrator and couldn't be happier. She loves meeting new neighbors and volunteers and is committed to doing her best to help our community.
When she isn't at the office, Allison lives on the mainland. She enjoys spending time with her daughter, raising monarch caterpillars, making jewelry, and reading.
Jeannie moved to Maine in 1988 and has spent the majority of the years since then on MDI. She currently resides in Southwest Harbor with her husband, Brenton, and 13-year-old daughter, Janiece, and has 2 other children, Matthew and Ashley, who both graduated from MDIHS. Jeannie has worked extensively in area restaurants and food service businesses and has a passion for excellent customer service and creating personal connections with those she encounters. She loves the MDI community and is so grateful to be able to live and raise her kids here! When she does have downtime, she enjoys a quick swim at Echo Lake, a quiet walk with her dog, Lucy, meeting friends for brunch, and hanging out around the firepit with her family.
