Board of Directors

Jaja Martin, President, having lived and worked abroad for many years, is raising her family in Bremen.  A round-the-world sailor, she has written and edited articles for sailing magazines, is co-author of the book, Into the Light, and her family's sailing odyssey is the subject of the documentary, Iceblink, recently aired on PBS.  In her spare time, she runs an e-commerce business, plays cello in the Seacoast Community Orchestra, sings in Common Threads, and volunteers at her local school.  Jaja, whose children also introduced her to Heartwood, brings a worldy spectrum of culture and community to HRTC's board.

Kimberley Tolley, Treasurer, before moving to Maine from Boston, was a graduate of Northeastern University and a partner in an international consulting firm, specializing in strategic innovations.  Kimberley met her husband, Michael, in Camden, fell in love with both Michael and the area, and permanently moved their family to the Midcoast, in 2002.

She has worked at the Damariscotta Montessori School since 2005, a non-profit private school serving over 100 students from perschool through grade 8. 

Kim has always loved theater, was a member of her high school's drama club, but her inclination was more "behind the scenes" than onstage!  Her three daughters, however, have an affinity for performing on stage, whether acting, singing or dancing. 

Kim is active in the Midcoast Maine Community, serving on two local boards and coordinating/teaching faith formation at St. Patrick's Church, in Newcastle.  Kim's husband is a Columbia River Bar Pilot in Astoria, Oregon.  When in Oregon, he is actively involved in the Knights of Columbus and the Astoria Warming Shelter for the Homeless, and he is a local Hospice volunteer.  As a family, the Tolleys enjoy spending their time together being a bi-coastal traveling family.
