Chris served on the board of ArtVan for 2 years prior to joining ArtVan as their Operations Manager. Chris has extensive experience in nonprofit management. She directed AmeriCorps programs for almost 20 years with the Student Conservation Association, the Maine Conservation Corps and the Island Institute. She then served as a Program Officer with the Maine Community Foundation. Recently she held the position of Director of Programs and Community Relations with Coastal Humane Society. Chris enjoys working with a team to build programs. She has also been driven by good mission work, and ArtVan allows her to connect with her original passion- art. She holds a degree in Fine Arts, and is excited to be part of an amazing community of like-minded people working to make our communities stronger. She lives in Topsham with her best furry friend, Marlee, and enjoys tearing her house apart and putting it back together in her spare time.
