Elswyth relocated to Maine from Philadelphia, where she served as Healthy Communities Coordinator for the Philadelphia City Planning Commission. Prior to that, she worked as a transportation planner specializing in walking, bicycling, and transit for the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board and Land-of-Sky Regional Council in Western North Carolina and consulted on pedestrian and bicycle plans for a number of small communities. She holds a Master of City and Regional Planning degree from Rutgers University and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Between college and grad school, Elswyth spent a summer living and working in downtown Bar Harbor and vowed to return to Maine more permanently at some point later in her career to help develop and preserve sustainable small towns where residents can meet their daily needs locally and enjoy convenient and equitable access to nature.
