Hi all, my name is Kaylynn Emerson. Being born and raised in Rockland, Maine, I’ve never known much more than boats and beaches, and I’m perfectly okay with that. My family is here and ever growing so I don’t plan on leaving any time soon! I have six younger siblings, so as you can imagine I have a lot of birthdays to keep track of.

I graduated from Oceanside High School in 2014, and attended UMaine for one year but returned for a number of reasons. After taking some time off, I have finally decided to finish my degree, at the University of Maine at Augusta. I will be majoring in Business Management with a concentration in Public Administration, and a minor in Human Resources, as well as getting my Social Media Certificate.

My very best friends are my two dogs, Colt is a rust-colored, slobbering, yellow lab/Golden mix who has always had a puppy spirit, even in his older years. Pearl is a fawn colored, loving, energetic pug whose bark is bigger than her bite. Her birthday is two days before mine, so we’re kind of a package deal.

In my rare free time, you can find me either fishing or baking. Fishing has been something I can bond over with anyone in my family and I’ve been doing it since I was 4 years old. Baking came to me later in life, but it has been a huge stress reliever, and I love the feeling of success I get when I nail a new recipe. I also enjoy being Dream Local’s resident Mistress of the #ScareSquad.
