Sarah Whytock

Membership and Marketing Director

I love knowing that each day I have the potential to positively impact someone's life by what I say, how I treat others and how I do my job. A simple smile, hello or how are you can mean so much to someone in need.

Kathy Miller

Welcome Center Supervisor

Working at the Y, I have the privilege of being a part of a community-minded organization.  They say that you don’t work a day of your life if you enjoy what you do...whether it’s a toddler that wants to show off a toy, a single mom that needs help walking their children to Child Care, or a senior who’s only interaction is the Welcome Center. The stories are endless! This is more than a gym...it’s a community.

Samantha Bragg

Penobscot Bay YMCA Sports and Camping Director

I first came to the Y because it gave me a way to work with our youth and be a positive role model. I love see others succeed, not just children, but all of our members! People feeling a sense of community and being part of the greater good is "my why" for the Y.

Lydia Shook

Penobscot Bay YMCA Youth Development Program Director

I work for the Y because it is an opportunity to be part of a greater overall cause and be part of a mission that allows you to make a difference in the community. The Y is a place to find yourself and grow as a person while pursuing your passion while making a real impact and experiencing a rewarding career.

Norm Parratt

Teen Center Coordinator

I joined the Y as a member and became a volunteer when I discovered the Y was much more than just a place to workout.  I wanted to become part of an organization that encouraged 'healthy living' in a very broad and encompassing sense of the term.

Sandy Bodamer

Senior Activities Director and interim RHY Wellness Director

I began my career at the Camden Area YMCA when I moved to Maine from Pittsburgh. Go Steelers! My love of fitness and working with others has kept me at the Y for 20 years. I love working with the Active Older Adult population, helping to improve the quality of health and wellness through my classes and outreach in the community.

Mary Bonney

Rockland Harbor YMCA Early Learning Director

I work at the Y because of the family friendly environment. I also get the opportunity to see each child that comes to our childcare learn and grow in to confident little people each and every day.

Benjie Blake

Rockland Harbor YMCA Sports & Camping Director

I grew up spending many hours at my local Y and some amazing staff members played a large role in making me the person I am today. Due to the positive influence they had on my life, I decided at an early age that I wanted to work with youth and strive to have the same positive effect in their lives.

Shelby Salas

Rockland Harbor YMCA Assistant Wellness Director

I grew up as a member of the Y and it completely transformed my perspective of what it meant to be a part of something special. As a youth, the Y gave me a sense of belonging, where I could participate in summer camp and all the things I was passionate about. Now years later, I get to be a part of the Y once again. I love the day-to-day connections that I make with members because everyone has such a unique yet important story to tell. Helping people reach their health and fitness goals is an important part of what I do, but it is in creating those connections and friendships that makes working for the Y truly special.
