Michelle's life is a colorful map of exploration and adventure. From the iconic streets of New York to the sunny shores of Florida, the jagged coast of Maine to the rugged terrain of Montana, she's been fortunate to call some of America's most beautiful states home. Beyond the U.S., Michelle's wanderlust has taken her on a motorcycle journey through India, led her to teach English in Hanoi, and saw her studying Spanish in Guatemala. Michelle graduated with a communications degree from the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and in addition to a career in advertising has worked with OnlyInYourState since 2016, where her love for travel and storytelling converges. Alongside writing and exploring, Michelle finds joy in photography, staying active, and time with her family.

There are more than 4,600 islands located off the coast of Maine. Some of these are inhabited year-round, some offer wonderful tourist activities and others are tiny and often overlooked. Each one adds to the character of Maine’s craggy coastline and, even those that cannot be visited easily, are important to our geography.
While these coastal islands feel so very Maine, many people forget about our inland islands (those located in lakes and rivers) and the ones that might not actually be islands at all. These are the ones that might feel like an island, but are actually connected by a small strip of land making them easily visited and totally worth the trip. One of our favorites is Georgetown in Sagadahoc County.
