Mahoosuc Land Trust is pleased to announce the hiring of our new Associate Executive Director, Annie Reiter. Annie brings over eight years of land trust experience most recently serving as the Operations Director for the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust in Bath. She has a broad base of administrative management experience with specialized skills in stewardship, grant writing, and partnering with other nonprofits.
In her first career, Annie was an environmental, health, and safety manager in energy and biotech industries for 14 years. She and her family came to Maine in 2006 looking for a life with “more green and less noise.” Annie serves on her town conservation commission and in the summer, she can most often be found in her kayak paddling Maine’s lakes and ponds with her family.”
“Mahoosuc Land Trust’s board and membership are enthusiastic and committed to conservation in this region. I am looking forward to getting to know the natural areas and communities in Northern Oxford County and feel fortunate to be able to participate in accomplishing the conservation goals.”
If you haven't had the opportunity to meet Annie, please stop by the office or email Annie at email@example.com to introduce yourself and say hello.
