Carol Walker Aten
I'm a cross-pollinator of people
Job Founder/Project Manager / Leadership Portland
Lives In The West End
I manage the city’s new civic education program: Leadership Portland, own Tegwe Consulting - specializing in non profit capacity building and organizational development, as well as a photographer and painter. Portland Maine is a great place to be a multi-tasker!
Why did you choose Portland? We located to Portland from Seacoast New Hampshire for work opportunity. Even though it's an hour away, it is a whole new experience living in a small and vibrant city.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? The Casco Bay ferry mailboat run with a picnic lunch. And in the summer, sailing with Portland Schooner Company.
What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Miso noodles at Pai Men Miyake. All year round.
I teach story writing throughout Greater Portland and connect published authors with student writers.
