Programs and Services Specialist
Kristine Binette is the Maine Field Service Manager who is looking forward to working with families and their journey with seizures in Maine. Kristine is returning to this position as she had previously worked with the Epilepsy Foundation New England in a similar role a few years back. She has a lot of experience on how seizures can affect a family and the roller coaster of emotions that it brings. Kristine's 11-year-old daughter, Delia, has epilepsy. She had her first seizure at one month of age. Kristine has lived in Maine all her life and currently resides in Southern Maine with her husband Jason and daughters Morgan and Delia and service-dog Stormi. Stormi is Delia’s seizure response service dog. Kristine holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and is a certified elementary school teacher. She taught 2nd and 3rd grade for over 8 years before stepping away to take care of her daughter. A decision she has never regretted because it brought her to Epilepsy Foundation New England. Kristine is eager to step back into the role of Field Service Manager and help the families of Maine.
