Robyn Stanicki joined the board of MCRC in August. She is a community and economic development coordinator serving towns in central and Midcoast Maine as part of an effort to foster sustainability and resiliency in planning and government. Robyn has a background in social work, policy, and research methodologies and recently completed a NIDA-funded project with Dartmouth College where she coordinated a research study improving healthcare screenings and access to treatment for patients with substance use disorders.
Robyn is passionate about social justice and equality and is involved with legislative advocacy for foster care, anti-poverty programs, and our vulnerable neighbors. As a public servant, she recently campaigned for the Maine legislature and looks for ways to do the most good. “I enjoy working with dedicated partners toward such worthy goals. Our community needs to turn more of our attention toward social problems such as addiction and recovery, recognizing and reclaiming the potential of our friends, neighbors and our community.”
Robyn lives with her wife Sam and their two sons in Belfast, Maine.
