Jean and Hank
Jean grew up in Wyoming and Colorado and loves both the mountains and the ocean. She is an avid sailor and is enjoying exploring Penobscot Bay by sailboat! Jean is currently a pediatric speech language pathologist in a hospital setting in Belfast and has also completed training as a Buddhist chaplain. Poetry, sunsets, and trees are some of her favorites. Her first job after graduate school in San Diego was in Bangor, Maine, in 1983, so life in Belfast has come full circle!
While Hank’s early years were in California, New England’s vivid ruggedness has been his “place” since. He enjoys winter camping, the “view” from mountaintops, and two-wheeled vehicles. Hank has been a small business owner/general contractor/carpenter for more than 30 years and has training as a life coach.
Jean and Hank share a love of poetry and meditation. They have both participated in workshops for NVC (non-violent communication) and value empathic approaches to communication. They like creating connections and are enjoying participating in community with their neighbors at Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage!
