Upper Saco Valley Land Trust Welcomes New Development/Outreach Coordinator to their team and adds a new member to their Board of Directors

Conway, NH - This summer the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust (USVLT) welcomed a new Development/Outreach Coordinator to their team and added a new member to their Board of Directors.

Carissa Milliman is USVLT’s new Development/Outreach Coordinator. Carissa moved to the Mount Washington Valley a few years ago with her partner and three legged Pomsky, Doggo. She graduated with a bachelor’s in communication/print journalism and later went on to obtain an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction, both from Pennsylvania State University. She is a certified ELA teacher and yoga instructor. Since she was a child, Carissa has always felt the most at home in nature, be it the Finger Lakes of upstate NY, the trails of Pennsylvania, the coast of CA, or the mountains of NH, among many other places. She is excited to be a part of the USVLT team and looks forward to supporting an essential organization in the community. You can find her hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, doing yoga, split boarding (precariously), watching live music and following various partners up ice climbs.

Sean Wadsworth became a member of USVLT’s Board of Directors at the USVLT’s Board Meeting in June. Sean Wadsworth's childhood years were guided by his parents volunteering at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Upstate NY, where he later worked on the grounds and trails, and as a youth camp counselor. He attended UNH to study Environmental Conservation and Political Science and worked for a decade as a technician in air quality research and engineering. Sean and his wife Rachel Hamilton and their two boys moved to Albany NH in 2013, where currently Sean is serving on the Planning Board and the Conservation Commission. He volunteers as the monitor for USVLT's World Fellowship conservation easement and is grateful to support and serve the mission work of USVLT.
