Education and Human Development - Alumni Profiles
- John Whitesides
University of Maine graduate John Whitesides played a key role for the 2011 champion Boston Bruins, working behind the scenes to optimize player performance and minimize down time related to injury.
- Bill Livesey
As the four — shortstop Derek Jeter, 37, pitcher Mariano Rivera, 40, catcher Jorge Posada, 39, and pitcher Andy Pettitte, 38 — begin to show their age at a time when two of the players' contracts are expiring, Yankees former executive Bill Livesey, a 1962 graduate of the College of Education at the University of Maine, will be watching with a trained eye.
- Chance Nalley
"UMaine has caring and dedicated professors who make good role models for quality teaching. I was a lost soul that found direction and guidance at UMaine. When I work with student teachers from other schools, including Columbia University’s Teachers College, they do not feel nearly as prepared as I did after being trained at UMaine."
- Lisa Liberatore
Entrepreneurship and philanthropy are Lisa Liberatore’s cup of tea. Literally. As the founder of Baxter Tea Co. in Gardiner, Maine, Liberatore donates 10 percent of her loose tea sales to aid in the preservation and maintenance of Baxter State Park.
- Linda Gabrielson
When Linda Gabrielson started graduate studies at the University of Maine, there's no way she could have predicted how her education and professional pursuits would coincide this year.
