Audrey Gup-Mathews has joined NERRA in the Program Associate role after working in the nonprofit and education fields for years. She is excited to work in support of NERRA’s vital mission. Audrey served as director of a community arts organization before moving to the University of New England, where she grew the university’s summer Early College Program and managed Continuing Education at the school. She also enjoys writing grants for nonprofit organizations, most recently serving as Grant Writer/Coordinator for York County Community College in Wells, ME for five years.
Audrey lives in Kennebunk, ME with her daughter Castine, who is completing Art Teacher Certification at the University of Southern Maine, and their Maine Coon cat, Amelia. They are lucky to live a block from the Mousam River, which feeds into the ocean a mile away – providing some amazingly scenic walks and bike rides – and is only a few miles from the Wells Estuarine Reserve.
Audrey earned a B.A. in Art History from Bowdoin College and a Master’s in the History of Art & Architecture from Brown University. She also holds teaching certificates from the University of Rhode Island and University of California, Irvine Ext.
