Tracey Perry – Initiatives Director
Tracey comes to the Katahdin Collaborative with an unwavering commitment to fostering positive community networking and renewed sustainability. She is dedicated to empowering individuals and driving collective action towards a brighter future.
Raised in a military family with Maine ties, she was lucky enough to explore the natural wonders of the Katahdin region during her youth and again during her college years at The University of Maine, Orono. This instilled a deep appreciation for the delicate balance between our footprint and the preservation of nature’s beauty. This is inherent to her indigenous roots and the reciprocity this incredible region has to offer.
Mount Katahdin has called Tracey home. Katahdin holds a deep cultural and spiritual center. She hopes to harness that and bring her experience working closely with local communities to identify needs, address challenges, and harness the collective potential to effect lasting change. Tracey hopes her ability to build bridges and forge partnerships will play a pivotal role in establishing the Katahdin region as a thriving hub of collaborative efforts. She is excited to engage diverse stakeholders, including community members, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits and foster an inclusive environment where ideas flourish and solutions emerge.
