John holds an MBA in health care management. He has been a CEO since 1982, and enjoys working in the hospital business. He is a member of numerous civic organizations. He was recruited to Maine because he is comfortable with competition. He remains here because of the great people.

She treasures being a part of this community and of Rotary.
