ROCKLAND — OUT Maine welcomes Maura Derrivan (she/her/hers) to its team. Maura joins the team as the Youth Engagement Coordinator, and brings mental health expertise to the position that works directly with LGBTQ+* youth in Maine.

She graduated with a masters of science in Counseling and Psychological Services in 2019 from Salem State University in Massachusetts, and has most recently worked as a mental health counselor with children, adolescents and adults in Southern Maine.
