Coordinator of Distribution Domination
In what began simply as pursuing a connection to work part-time at our raw-bar in Portland, my year and a half’s time working for Maine Oyster Company has evolved into a lifestyle and career that constantly excites and inspires me. With a background in biology and sustainable agriculture and past jobs having brought me all over the world, I am thrilled to be working on the Maine coast where I was born and raised. I have held many positions at MOC in our short history so far and although current passions are focused on expanding direct to consumer oyster sales and distribution, I also love shucking at private events, teaching our shucking classes and working on our oyster farm in Phippsburg. I am truly fascinated with every part of growing a business in aquaculture from marketing and branding to oysters and seaweed, and hope to soon have a sea farm myself. The entrepreneurial and environmental motivations behind this work are so fulfilling for me and working alongside farmers to shape this industry together, in real-time, is one of the most rewarding aspects of the job. There are so many innovations and opportunities for growth awaiting us on the horizon and I am very grateful to be a part of our Maine Oyster Company family and the many meaningful networks of amazing places and people it has brought me to.
