Squamscott Commons Brings on Two New Staff Members!

Squamscott Community Commons has added two new positions to support the creation of a new community center and YMCA in Exeter. Robin Drunsic has been named as Development Manager. New to the Exeter community, she joins us along with her husband Michael and two young children, Aiden and Dylan from Manchester, Vermont. Robin brings with her a strong academic background in business management, a keen entrepreneurial spirit, and the experience of working in the development office of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the most highly visible and successful fundraising organizations in New England. Prior to moving to Exeter, Robin and her husband operated a successful 70-seat café for which Robin was responsible for all aspects of business administration. Robin holds a B.A. in Business Management from the University of New Hampshire as well as an M.B.A. from Simmons College.

Minnie Sabin has been named Grants Manager for the organization. She resides in Exeter, having moved here in 2005 with her husband Frank and three-year-old son Lucas. Minnie began her career in politics as a staff member for a U.S. Senator for whom she cultivated relationships with community leaders and international dignitaries. From politics, Minnie transitioned to a career in fundraising, where she felt her skills could be applied directly to benefit non-profit organizations. She has gained significant fundraising experience as a development officer for Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago as well as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Minnie holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Washington.
