Maureen stepped in as the second Executive Director of the Westfield Business Improvement District in May of 2012.

She is co-founder and former co-owner of Optimum Health Therapeutic Massage here in Westfield. She has practiced Massage Therapy for the past 20 years primarily in private practice.

Her background also includes experience in corporate interior design/space planning, facilities/project management as well as managing of a $2mil. + Retail store.

She currently sits on the Board of Directors of Westfield on Weekends, The Friends of the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail, The Westfield Women’s Club Foundation, as well as Corporator of the Shurtleff Children’s Services Foundation.

Maureen has been involved working voluntarily with the Westfield BID since 2006. She worked very closely with Lisa McMahon, the WBID’s first Executive Director on various projects such as the Farmers Market. She also served on its Board.

As an entrepreneur of a local micro business Maureen was firm supporter of the WBID. This belief fuels her passion and energy for her new role as Executive Director.

The WBCA, in concert with the Ware Community Development Department, will host a series of seminars with speakers who are successful and overcame the challenges to help their communities revitalize their downtowns.
