    Rental Manager

    I am a Mainer born and raised in the Old Town/Milford area. After graduation, I attended the University of Maine, receiving my Bachelor's in International Affairs and Economics. My career began in the hotel industry. I have worked in hotel sales and marketing, tourism marketing, media sales, and cellphone sales. My next adventure was joining the Darling's team in 2019.

    My home is Milford now where I live with my inherited poodle, named Francie. I enjoy giving back to Bangor, volunteering with the American Folk Festival, the Greater Bangor Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Sunshine Fitness.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, binge watching nerdy Netflix shows and working out at Sunshine's Fitness Studio. 

    I love the Darling's culture! Employees are recognized as more than just a number, which sets Darling's apart. They care for their employees and their community. I am proud to give back to my customers each day. Feel free to reach out anytime for your next rental vehicle.
