Elaine has lived most of her life in New Hampshire. She went to UMO and earned an associates degree in Animal Medical Technology. She worked as a Vet Tech for many years. She later went back to school and earned her degree in teaching.
She married her high school sweetheart, Paul, and they have raised two children, Katie and David. They moved to Castine in 2005, and Elaine began working at Adams School as an Ed. Tech that fall. She switched roles in 2010 and became the school secretary, a job she feels is just the right fit.
