Development Assistant

As Development Assistant, Jen works with the development team to plan and execute Friends of Acadia’s Annual Benefit and Auction. She’s involved in every aspect of the event, from soliciting sponsors and donors to event logistics and details – a “right-hand woman” to Senior Development Officer for Major Gifts and Events Marisa Marisa Marinelli.

Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, Jen moved to Bar Harbor in 2020 with her husband and three daughters. A longtime yoga instructor, teaching both adults and kids, she’s also supremely well traveled. She’s lived in many states in the U.S. and countries around the world – too many to count – and has even hiked to the Everest base camp.
