Mara joined the team in January 2019, took a summer to work for the National Park Service, and joined us again in November 2019. Mara graduated Bates College in 2016. She works seasonally as a Park Ranger and has also worked at historical sites like Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. She has a passion for biology, history, and theater; but even greater passions for her family dog Atticus, her 15 year old cat Ditto, and her husky mix Aspen. In her spare time she loves hiking, baking, and playing video games.
