Meet Our Team...
With a combined experience of 200+ years, the SKILLS management team all strive for the common goal of helping adults with intellectual disabilities and other challenges achieve their goals.
Meet Our Directors
I first joined SKILLS in 2010 as the Director of Finance, and in 2016 I was appointed Executive Director. I have more than 20 years of passionate and successful non-profit leadership experience serving organizations in Central Maine. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Thomas College, and I am also a Certified Public Accountant. I am dedicated to maintaining and growing the mission of SKILLS, Inc., and the people we support in their journey to live happy, healthy and productive lives as part of their community.
Director of Program Services
I am the Director of Program Services for SKILLS, Inc. I began my journey with SKILLS in 1989, as a per diem worker. I immediately fell in love with my new career. I worked hard, immersing myself in the services, learning everything I could, and taking every opportunity to move up the ladder and take on additional responsibilities. In 1999, I was offered and accepted my current position. One of my primary responsibilities is to ensure all people are treated with dignity and respect. My job is multifaceted, which provides me the opportunity to constantly stretch my limits with endless opportunities to grow and learn from the people SKILLS supports and from its employees. I am honored to guide such a dynamic organization.
Director of Human Resourses
I am happy to have joined SKILLS, Inc., as the Director of Human Resources in 2016, bringing over 20 years of human resources experience in both for-profit and non-profit arenas. I am responsible for directing all human resources functions, including recruitment and retention, employee relations, and benefits administration. I am a Senior Certified Professional (SCP) with the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
Director of Finance

Meet the Managers and Assistant Residential Managers
I am Residential Manager of the residential facilities here at SKILLS. This is my newest adventure of many that I have had the opportunity to explore within the company. I initially started my career here in 2005 as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) working full-time on the weekends. I became a Team Leader in 2009, where I had the opportunity to work with many different individuals in many different locations within SKILLS. I am also a MANDT instructor and teach new and seasoned employees the importance of relationship building while supporting the individuals we serve. One of my favorite things about working at SKILLS is the many opportunities that you are given to grow and learn. There are always new challenges or adventures waiting for you every day!
Community Support Manager
I have been working for SKILLS since May of 1998. I began my career as a Per Diem Direct Support Professional (DSP) and have since moved through a variety of positions, each with increasing responsibilities. I am now the Manager of Central Maine Community Supports, Ervin Community Supports, L.C. Dill Community Supports, and Pittsfield Community Supports. I love working for SKILLS, helping the people we support, and working as a team. It is a rewarding experience and I look forward to new adventures every day.
