BRUNSWICK — Coastal Humane Society and Lincoln County Animal Shelter board of directors have named Trendy Stanchfield as the new executive director.

Stanchfield takes the position after former Director Joe Montisano left the organization in August to be director of the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth, Minnesota.

Stanchfield has recently served Goodwill Northern New England as the senior director of mission investment and communication.

Stanchfield is a graduate of the University of North Dakota, and lives in Brunswick with her husband Phil and two young sons.

In early December, she adopted Ermie, a 9-year-old tuxedo cat, at the shelter’s Range Road facility.
