Kate Marone joined Healthy Lincoln County (HLC) in 2015. She serves as the liaison to the towns and community organizations in Lincoln County. She is working with the HLC Advisory Board to develop collaborative relationships, and working with HLC staff to achieve our public health goals to help communities in Lincoln County achieve healthier living.


Kate has spent three years in Maine working on a project with the state public health agency. Prior to that, she spent most of her career working in county public health agencies in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in north central Montana. She has an undergraduate degree in social work, a graduate certificate in public health, and a master's degree in health and risk communication.


Growing up in a military family fostered Kate's love of travel. However, she's always been drawn to rural communities and is happy to be settled on the midcoast of Maine. When she's not working, Kate can be found exploring the lakes and peninsulas, cooking, hiking, or gardening. She looks forward to the winter so she can go snowshoeing, and catch up on her reading.
