Meet our Program coordinator
In 2019, we hired our first staff member. Bergin O'Malley serves as Program Coordinator and oversees the day-to-day operations of the Merrill House including all program, communication, development and building-related manners.
Bergin has over twenty years of experience working in non-profit, political, grassroots and business environments. Although she has lived in Brussels, London, Miami, Mexico and New York, she has called Stonington "home" since her childhood summers here. She has lived full-time since 2012, and when she is not at the Merrill House, she serves as an elected official as a Burgess, and is a prolific singer-songwriter. She loves her community, working with the writers, and helping to preserve the space at 107.
