Colleen’s diverse experiences as a deckhand on a replica 18th century Schooner, a customer service agent at a Fortune 500 company, a classroom educator, a costumed holiday tour guide, and a mother have all helped prepare her to be the Director of Administration at the Chesapeake Conservancy. In this position, Colleen is responsible for the financial management of the organization as well as human resources, federal contracting, and general office administration. She holds a B.A. in History from Washington College and an M.A.T. in Elementary Education from East Tennessee State University. She recently spent a week at Duke University earning her Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership. In her spare time, of which there is very little, Colleen enjoys visiting local parks and museums with her husband and young daughter.
