2009-present

Born in Calais and raised in Orono, Maine, Mylisa returned to the Pine Tree State after a 20 year hiatus in California. It was there that she gained most of her customer service and management experience working for companies such as the Pebble Beach Resorts and the Golden Gate Grill in San Francisco. Upon returning to her home state in 2004, Mylisa chose to call Belfast her home in great part because of the Belfast Co-op. She got her foot in the door as a part time-cashier in 2005, while also working as a full-time registered Maine guide in Stonington. As she took on more hours she quickly transitioned to Floor Manager, and in 2008 became the Front End Manager. In 2009 the Board of Directors chose her to be part of the new General Management team where her primary focus remains exemplary customer service. Mylisa oversees the Floor Managers, the Front End Team, Human Resources and Health and Beauty.
