Staff Updates
Please join us in welcoming Susan Roux, our new Communications Coordinator.  She will be stepping behind the scenes at KBIA updating us all on the many fun activities planned and capturing the spirit of summer at the beach.
Susan moved with her family from the greater Boston area to Maine in 2012, and since then has enjoyed her time as a stay-at-home mom of her two young children.  She previously worked as a Project Manager for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and a health outcomes consulting firm in Boston.  Altlhough much of her work experience is in the public health field, Susan has also worked as a communications assistant at the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce.  She immensely enjoyed that line of work, and continued to enjoy writing and public outreach as her career moved into the public health field.  Susan is excited for the opportunity to work with KBIA, and feels that it will be a wonderful way to become even more involved in the Kennebunk community. 
Her main passion is spending time with her family down at the beach year round.  Now residing in Kennebunk with her husband Brian and their children Cailyn and Colby, Susan is looking forward to immersing herself in summers of fun at KBIA.
Elizabeth, our front desk extraordinaire, is now also our Event Coordinator, happily ensuring all the summer’s exciting events are running smoothly.
