Welcome, Johannah!

A few weeks ago, Johannah Blackman joined the Abbe team as our new Marketing & Events Coordinator.  We are thrilled to have Johannah with us, and asked her to take a moment to introduce herself to friends of the Abbe Museum:

Johannah Blackman, Marketing and Events Coordinator

I have lived on MDI for just two years, but in that time I've heard so many wonderful things about the Abbe and had such lovely experiences with the museum that I am thrilled to be working here! I grew up in New Hampshire and attended Connecticut College for undergraduate studies, obtaining my BA in Philosophy. I was then blessed to follow a path of work and study that took me to several places in the U.S. and abroad, leading to wonderful new experiences and friends. I ultimately landed in San Francisco, where I completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology. My fiancee grew up on MDI, and when the time came to chose a place to settle after graduate school, I was delighted to move to such a beautiful location. This past season, I was the Events Coordinator for Camp Beech Cliff as they celebrated their first summer on their renovated campus.

I have been at the Abbe for a couple weeks now and am excited to be getting my feet under me and digging in on several different fronts, including looking ahead to upcoming events, developing a social marketing plan and promoting the Abbe as a beautiful and unique location for your next event through our rental program. When not at the Abbe, I can be found teaching yoga at Cattitude, spending time in the park or in the garden, working on Bar Harbor Community Farm, and studying and working in the field of Climate Psychology.

I have really enjoyed getting to know the Abbe's incredible staff and look forward to meeting the museum's supporters and members. If you have any questions about events or facility rentals, or just want to introduce yourself, don't hesitate to contact me at johannah -at- abbemuseum.org.
