Kathrine is a native of the New Harbor, Pemaquid area, attending Bristol Consolidated and Lincoln Academy High School. She is a direct descendant of the Mayflower through John Howland. As a teen, Kathrine was a former Miss Teen Maine USA contestant representing her hometown of New Harbor. She spent summers with family in Dresden, Maine where they cultivated wild Maine blueberries on their family farm. Together they enjoyed seasonal trips to Boothbay Harbor for shopping, salt water taffy and candle stick bowling excursions. Kathrine engaged in Community Service by chaperoning at her local Teen Center for summer programs, and assisted at community dinners cooking with her mother. Shortly after graduating high school, Kathrine travelled cross country to Long Beach, California. It only took a few years to miss her home state and move back to the coast of Maine.
Shortly after returning, Kathrine found lead roles in Damariscotta at The Weatherbird, and then Boothbay Harbor at McSeagulls, Mine Oyster and Boat House Bistro, all while juggling studies at Southern Maine Community College. Kathrine achieved a degree for Business Administration with emphasis on Marketing. Kathrine was personally invited by the Dean of Southern Maine Community College to speak publicly on behalf of the student body.
Kathrine met her husband, in Boothbay and they soon realized that the Harbor felt like home, and settled by the water on Southport Island where her husband is a State employee tending the Southport swing bridge. Kathrine is delighted to become a member of the Boothbay Harbor Regional Chamber team! She is proud to be born and raised in Maine, enriched with a natural vitality and outlook on life and will share her positive enthusiasm with the town of Boothbay Harbor to develop a business outreach program through the BHRCC in order to foster a shared sense of community within her Boothbay neighborhood.
