Tessa Shanteler


Rural Youth Organizer: Kennebec County

Tessa is a rural Mainer at heart. She graduated from UMaine in 2022 with a Bachelors of Science in Wildlife Ecology and Ecology and Environmental Science, where her courses and engagements outside of school have influenced her involvement with the outdoors. Tessa has post graduation experience working for an interfaith based non-profit and farming with a sustainable agriculture mindset. Tessa enjoys all things outdoors- camping, hiking, hammocking, kayaking and talking to trees especially! Tessa is so excited to be working with JustME for JustUS and to get the ball rolling on community organizing in central ME!
