Board of Directors

M.Connelly Head Shot 2 (2).jpg

I have lived in Windham for the past 25 years. I spent my career working in Higher Education and retired in 2019 as the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs at UMass Lowell. I have always appreciated the services the Nesmith Library provides to Windham. I look forward to working with the other Board members, in providing community programs that will enhance those resources and services. I started as the Chair of the Book Fair Committee, a position I still hold, as I really enjoy the Book Fair and the fabulous volunteers who are currently helping with this effort.

I have lived in Windham for about 5 years now with my wife and daughter. I try to help out where I can and always look forward to our annual Strawberry Festival. During the day, I work from home as a software engineer and play volleyball in the evenings. In case anyone asks, in my photo I'm holding an iguana named Elvis. 

I have been a resident of Windham for many years. I am a past President of the Windham Service Club and past State President of the General Federation of Women’s Club. I hold positions in GFWC State, New England Region and Internationally. I am a leader in my local church, region and state. I am the mother of six and grandmother of ten grandsons. I love spending time with family, traveling, reading, being outdoors, knitting, quilting and volunteering.

I have been a proud member of the FLOW family since 2018 following a relocation to Windham from Utah.  I am married with two school-aged children: Abby and JP.  I am a Spanish teacher and an award-winning professional balloon artist.  Many of the local children and their families know me as, ¨the balloon lady.¨  I joined FLOW to meet new people and to satisfy my desire to volunteer.  Being a member of the FLOW family has been a very rewarding experience and I am grateful to be a part of such a diverse team of individuals working together toward a common goal: to support the Nesmith library.

I grew up in Southern NH, and have lived in Windham for the past 5 years with my husband and our 4 children. I had a career in software engineering and then opened a small photography business, so I could spend more time at home with my kids. Serving the community really brings so much joy and I am so glad to get to help support our library through FLOW.

A newcomer to Windham in 2023, my growing family quickly became weekly visitors to our wonderful library. It helps build our 3 year old and 1 year old's imaginations (and helps mom & dad stay sane by giving us an activity on rainy/snowy weekends)! I'm passionate about increasing awareness of all of Nesmith's fantastic resources to other local families.

First, I am a happy wife and mother of 4 adults and Memaw to a beautiful granddaughter.
Second, I am the proud owner of successful promotional products and virtual assistant business going on 20 years.
I have always had a love of reading and volunteering in community organizations, so being part of FLOW was an easy YES!
I look forward to giving back and helping the dynamic FLOW team create fun, community events in support of the Nesmith Library.

We have lived in Windham since 1983.  I have a degree in Electrical Engineering with a Masters in EE/Biomedical Engineering.  My first job was in a hospital as a Clinical Engineer.  After other positions, I spent 20 years in the Medical Division of Hewlett Packard.  Now in retirement, I enjoy reading, gardening and helping my wife with her small business.

I fall in love with the public library when I was six years old. There are always new things to discover in the library. When I saw that there was a need at Nesmith Library, I decided to help out.

My husband and I have lived in Windham for the past 25 years. I am retired from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation (DCR), where I served as Director of Community Relations. I enjoy volunteering and being able to give back to our community and making a difference.
