Jane joined Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County in November, 2019 as our Bereavement Services Coordinator.

An Episcopal priest resident in the Diocese of Maine, Jane spent 14 years in parish ministry before joining us. She has many years of experience providing pastoral support to those who were dying and grieving, and shares that it was one of the aspects of parish ministry she found most rewarding.

Jane believes that the deepening of open-hearted relationships and the gifts of community are vital for healthy dying and grieving. She is inspired by the profound engagement of HVHC’s volunteers and staff and is honored to participate in this vital work.

Emilie has been enthusiastically welcomed into her new position as Office Manager at HVHC. She has shared how impressed she is by the dedication of the staff and volunteers that she has witnessed in her brief time here so far.

Emilie’s background is in office management and bookkeeping, though she has spent the last seven years raising her children and running a landscaping business. This has prepared her well for the multi-tasking required in this position! She has hit the ground running (and shoveling!) and is juggling preparations for many HVHC programs that are currently active.

Welcome Emilie the next time you call or visit the office.
