Do you have ideas about the future of Freeport's downtown?
The Freeport Town Council, Town of Freeport, together with the Freeport Economic Development Corporation, and a team of urban planners, designers, and local residents are holding a community planning process to reimagine the future of Freeport's downtown. From now through May, we are gathering input on Freeport’s Downtown and we want to hear from you!
This community planning process will result in an Early Action Plan. The Plan, once reviewed by the community and adopted by the Town Council, will provide a framework for clear implementation actions and strategies for resiliency in light of COVID-19 and the changing retail landscape.
Do you have ideas about the future? Join us, as we craft a vision for the future of Downtown Freeport.

Art provides a non-dualistic lens; breaking the illusion of separation that exists between us, the mind and the heart, humans and the earth, and the divine and secular. Art helps me to break free from my cognitive mind and embrace intuition.
My current focus is imagining and creating a way of life that is in harmony with all of creation. I ask - how can we rekindle our connection, respect, and love for all of the earth? How can we reimagine life’s meaning not measured and derived from material wealth, but by increased consciousness, deeper relationships, and focussing purpose? How can we live on earth sustainably in a way that acknowledges the intrinsic value and wisdom of nature?
I feel that this reconnection with earth and a benevolent universe is infinitely healing. It is also crucial in addressing earth’s greatest challenges including climate change, forced migration, societal inequities, racism, and rising levels of mental health issues.
I am an artist at my core but along my life journey, I obtained a BS in environmental studies and worked as a family physician with a focus on integrative healing and care for the underserved. I stopped practicing medicine in 2015 in order to pursue art and for the healer to heal herself. I am the mother of two beautiful children, a prior New Yorker and a resident of Maine for almost 20 years.
