Operations Maintenance Coordinator
Worked at St. Croix Tissue since 2015
“I graduated from UMaine with a degree in Biology, later obtaining my Veterinary Technology degree. After working in this field 8 years, I was hired by the brand new St Croix Tissue(SCT). Here, I have worked as a machine operator, in quality, as a tissue machine Superintendent, and now an operations maintenance coordinator. I enjoy working at SCT because there is always more to learn. No two days are ever the same. Why do I like living here? I enjoy the natural landscape; hiking, boating, swimming, gardening and generally being outside.” ~ Sara Krug
Worked at St. Croix Tissue since 2016
“I graduated from the University of Maine in 2013 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. After graduating I became a process engineer with Verso Paper and then SCA; gaining paper, pulp, and converting experience. I joined the St. Croix team as a production engineer in 2016 to assist with the startup of TM2. Since then I have transitioned through Superintendent and Quality/Technical roles and am currently the Operations Manager for the tissue mill. I’ve enjoyed my time with St. Croix as I have been in a variety of roles and a part of many different aspects of running a mill, and I am fortunate to work with a great team of people. The Downeast area provides a lot of opportunities to spend time outdoors, and I appreciate being in Maine near my family.” ~ Jesse Stephens
