Kids: Two children ages 3 and 8
Interesting tidbits: I grew up in Midcoast Maine and have lived here all my life enjoying the many outdoor and athletic activities. I compete in local tennis tournaments (with some success) and recently completed my first full marathon in a respectable 4 hours 18 minutes.
Design Expert Since: January of 2004
My Favorite thing About CedarWorks: The Thanksgiving day celebration held each year at our manufacturing facility. We gather together at picnic tables surrounded by woodworking equipment and swingset parts to enjoy a pot luck feast. Then, with our plates overflowing with food, good conversation intermingles with the aroma of fresh cut cedar and deep fried turkey.
Kids: Three grown children and four grandchildren ages 7-19. And don't forget Moxie (age 3), my Jack Russell Terrier!
Interesting tidbits: My husband Les and I own and operate Green Arrow Farms, a hydroponic farm featuring a variety of tomatoes, cucumbers and other delectable goodies. We built the business from the ground up and now sell our produce at local farmer's markets, restaurants and grocery stores.

My Favorite thing About CedarWorks: The great conversations with parents just like you. I have developed many relationships with customers that have turned into long term friendships. Families have driven from as far as New York and Connecticut to our office here in Maine to sit down with me and work up a playset design. I hope you will, too!
Kids: Two children ages 6 and 9 and expecting another little one in July.
Interesting tidbits: I enjoy all things animal. Having grown up around horses, I was a rider as a child and now, much to my delight, my daughters are taking riding lessons. Though the connection is not obvious, I also enjoy the physical and mental challenges of karate. I practice at a local dojo where I have my brown belt, but I haven’t been able to interest the girls in it. At least not yet!

My Favorite thing About CedarWorks: The bi-weekly massages. A local masseuse comes in every two weeks to give us a massage to keep us all limber and healthy. So, if I seem particularly relaxed when speaking with you, it’s probably the 2nd or 4th Tuesday of the month.
Kids: Two children ages 8 and 15
Interesting tidbits: As a kid growing up in northern Maine, I remember looking forward to school closing for a few weeks each fall so that we could help with the potato harvest. And now, whether it’s here at CedarWorks or it’s the couple shifts a week I wait tables at a local seafood restaurant, I still feel like working and having fun go hand in hand. Of course, I also enjoy time outside of work, particularly chasing my girls around as they play softball, basketball, and field hockey.

My Favorite thing About CedarWorks: Putting smiles on children's faces! I love all the photos, emails, and letters I get from customers saying how happy they are with their playset. I almost find it strange that they thank me for helping them with their playset design. Little do they know that I was just having fun!
Kids: Two children ages 5 and 10
Interesting tidbits: While I grew up in Maine, I didn’t appreciate all it had to offer until I moved to the Rockport area. In addition to the mountains and the forests I enjoyed as a kid, I now have fun spending time with my family each summer exploring the islands and coves right here in Penobscot Bay. Our two current favorites are Lasalle Island and Warren Island where the kids while away the hours playing on the beach, swimming in the ocean, and exploring the tidal pools – a lifetime of good memories right outside our doorstep.
Design Expert Since: November of 2002
My Favorite thing About CedarWorks: The CedarWorks "Bowl-o-Rama". Each year we gather our plant and office staff together for a company wide bowling tournament at the local candlepin bowling lanes. Competition for the coveted "Duncan Cup" (named after Duncan Brown, founder of the CedarWorks we know today) is fierce but friendly. While we here at the office have only won once, we probably have a bit more fun since we don’t take it quite so seriously!
Kids: Some number ages yet-to-be-born to still youthful.
Interesting tidbits: While searching for the best playthings for my kids, I found this wonderful company called CedarWorks.
Design Expert Since: The moment I pick up the phone and called you
