Sara’s diverse background brings a perfect blend of talents to The Chamber.  She began to expand her skills gained in customer service and office management from previous jobs, when coming on board to help grow her husband’s music entertainment company Rainbow Productions in 2000.  In 2004 they expanded to include a retail music store, Music & Moore.
 
Sara’s enthusiasm for planning events as well as working with both the clients and vendors,  gives her insight to all the different aspects that go into executing the perfect event. It also allowed the opportunity to work in some of the most picturesque places in Maine and as an avid photographer, Sara and her camera are never far apart. Amassing an ever growing library of photos from venues and events,  she discovered a love for telling stories with pictures and from that, Shuttah Bug Photography was born.
 
When social media began to grow, Sara found her calling and quickly realized how vital this avenue of advertising would be. She began to develop her skills in graphic arts and web design as the internet and social media started to dominate how the world was communicating. As her skills grew, so did her reputation for all things visual and requests for assistance in social media.  She is now an admin on several Facebook accounts for various businesses and churches and has created several websites for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
 
Sara’s passions include gardening, photography, her family and her church. She loves thrift shops and flea markets, singing in her car and having new adventures.

Mikaela is joining the Chamber for the summer season and while she is new to the Chamber staff, she has been enjoying the Boothbay Harbor Region for 28 years.  She was very fortunate to be able to spend summers as a child on Spruce Point and in Bayville and her family finally bought a home on Murray Hill in East Boothbay in 1998.  Mikaela spent many days reading on the beach at Hendrick’s Head waiting for her siblings and friends who were sailing at Southport Yacht Club, countless hours babysitting, and waitressing at the Whale’s Tale for a couple of seasons between studying History/Education at Boston College.
 
After graduating Mikaela returned to Fairfax County, VA to pursue teaching at Falls Church High School.  She earned a master’s degree from the University of Virginia in special education.  After seven years of teaching in VA it was time for a move back to New England and Mikaela set her sights on Boston.  For the past three years she has taught United States History and Government at Cathedral High School, an urban Catholic school in downtown Boston while also taking in the tremendous history and traditions of the city. Exposure to the Commonwealth’s political climate and Boston’s widespread civic engagement has led her to the next chapter in her life: law school!
 
Mikaela is thrilled to be at the BHRCC! It is a perfect fit where she is able to engage her enthusiastic spirit and share with visitors, all of the wonderful things the Boothbay region has to offer as well as work with and promote our wonderful members.
