Staff & Board


Anne Marie Shea: Our General Manager is Anne Marie Shea, who has been manager at the Maple Corner Store for several years. She has lived in Maple Corner and worked at the store for nine years. She lives with her 12 year old son about a two minute walk from the store. Anne Marie is an active community member, serving on the Maple Corner Community Center board of directors since 2015. She has spent the last nine years learning about her fellow community members and how to run a general store. In her free time she enjoys baking gluten free treats.


Janet Chambers (Treasurer) In the fall of 2017, Janet moved to Maple Corner and immediately became a regular at the store, Whammy Bar and post office. After getting through that first winter with the help of the community, Janet decided to make this her permanent home. Janet has over 25 years of experience in finance and accounting, currently working in software as the CFO of ClearCompany. She is excited to be part of the Finance committee and serve on the board of the MCCS.

Brian Clark: Brian and his wife Barbara McAndrew built their Maple Corner home over 20 years ago, following his earlier career as a Central Vermont teacher. Since then he’s created Brian Clark Woodworks, a business specializing in handcrafted furniture of the highest quality. He is a regular musician on the Whammy Bar calendar and can often be found running, skiing and biking the roads and trails of Maple Corner. He serves on the business planning committee of the MCCS, focusing on building and fixed assets assessment.

Nick Emlen: Nick worked on the early planning phase of purchasing the store as a member of the original exploratory committee. He led the effort to obtain state permitting to bring the wastewater system for the Whammy Bar into regulatory compliance. He currently serves on the MCCS Personnel Committee. Nick worked for Vermont’s community mental health system of service delivery for 23 years, most recently as Mental Health Services Director for the Vermont Council. Now nominally retired, you can usually find him walking in the woods.

John Rosenblum: John drove his ‘62 VW van to Vermont in 1976 vowing to leave society forever, but eventually co-founded and was CEO of Green Mountain Logic, a Vermont life-science software company, which was ultimately acquired by Oracle. He co-founded and chaired the Clinical Pharmacology Community at Drug Informatics Association, served on the board of the Association of Clinical Pharmacology Units, on a VT legislative study committee as the governor’s representative, and on UVM’s SPARK Technology Commercialization Panel. He has advised several VT medical technology startups. John moved to Maple Corner in 2001, where he’s served as treasurer and president of Maple Corner Community Center. These days, he’s mainly focused on swimming in Curtis Pond, writing a novel, and spending time with his wonderful grandchildren.
