Mrs. Connell joined Gould in July of 2017. She brings with her a wealth of experience having held positions in Alumni Relations at both Hebron Academy and Bates College. Prior to her jobs at both schools, Mrs. Connell worked in fine wine sales in New York and Maine. Additionally, her passion for the arts led her to Boston for a position at the Museum of Fine Arts as well as an assistant directorship at a community art center in Newton, MA.
A native of Western New York’s “Snowbelt,” Mrs. Connell loves Maine’s long winters. Whether it’s riding Sunday River’s Magic Carpet with her daughter or chasing her husband down the slopes, she can be found outside enjoying the white stuff. And when the seasons change, she enjoys hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

She and her family enjoy the experiential learning and outdoor recreation and opportunities that Gould and Bethel have to offer. She lives in Bethel with her husband, Brian, and their three children — Maia ’20, Phoebe ’22, and Zachary.
