She and her husband Dennis raised their blended family on beautiful farmland in Stetson, where today they have a family compound and Gathering Center. Always active in grassroots organizing, Georgia was a founding member of PICA in Bangor and made three trips to El Salvador during and after the war there including one with her husband driving a truck filled with donated items needed by Bangor’s Sister City, Carasque.  She also was a founding board member of “Posibilidad”, an organization which educates people about the reality of life in Central and South America and builds bridges between people here and there. She worked for seven years at Eastern Maine Development Corporation at jobs including Deputy Director, Director of Marketing and Director of Finance. While her children were young she worked at St. John’s Catholic Church in Bangor as Youth Minister and went from there in 1993 to take a position as Controller at Hope House in Bangor, a shelter and treatment center especially for people struggling with addictions. When the organization merged with Acadia Hospital in 1998, she worked as project manager to oversee the integration.  In 2001, she moved to Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems to work as a grant specialist, for all of its health care organizations.  In coming to MaineGeneral Health she has sought to facilitate the use of grants to foster the strategic plans of the organization.
