Polly McAdam

Immersion Programs Coordinator


Polly graduated with a degree in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic in 2014. During her time at the College she collaborated with various professors as a teaching assistant in the fields of Spanish, organic gardening, documentary video, human ecology and sustainable business. 

In 2011 she completed an internship in Hampstead Marshall, England developing and presenting an independent research project on alternative ways to combat a fungal disease in apples. 

She recently concluded an article on the natural and social history of Ulmus americana on Mount Desert Island for the local historical society which will appear in their next publication. 

Polly has been working with PICY ever since she completed her own total immersion program with them in 2012. She works to coordinate programs and orientations and is equally as focused on the promotion and development of programs as on the physical and emotional well-being of the students.
