BAR HARBOR — Doreen Willett has been named executive director of Island Connections.
For the last five years, Willett has been the MDI YMCA’s membership director. Compassion for people and awareness of their diverse needs has been a part of Willett’s makeup since childhood. Her mother, who was disabled, taught her how to interact sensitively with others.
The combination of Willett’s people skills and her business acumen will enhance Island Connections’ community outreach and foster the organization’s expansion. Willett lives in Bar Harbor with her husband John. She began her career with Island Connections on July 6.
