Jessamyn Norton, Treasurer

Principal + Chief Investment Officer, Spinnaker Trust

Experience: While I have been given every opportunity in life, I come from a part of Maine where that is not necessarily the case for everyone. I serve because I believe that the concepts of learning and success are not "one size fits all." I have seen the power of mentorship and customized learning for youth and adults alike, and it is important to me to advance and promote the programs offered by LearningWorks in my home state.
Education: Jessamyn is currently the Chief Investment Officer and a Principal at Spinnaker Trust in Portland. Spinnaker is a wealth manager for individuals, families, and endowments with a specialty in trust and estate planning and trust administration.
