Carissa grew up on MDI and is happy to have settled back home after some time living away. After receiving a bachelor's degree in Burlington, VT, she decided to stay in the Green Mountain State to study for a master's degree in Intercultural, Service, Leadership, and Management. Carissa returned to Maine to work as a grassroots organizer and then traveled overseas in order to gain more experience working internationally. She worked as a divemaster in Malaysia, sold solar panels Perth, and painted murals in Mexico. As exciting as those adventures were, she is enjoying staying put. She loves to spend time with her cats, practice graphic design, and watch her garden grow.
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.
