Marla spent childhood summers in Bar Harbor with high hopes to reside in the area someday. After returning to the region a few years ago, she can now call Mount Desert Island home. Marla and her children currently enjoy being active during all four seasons whether in Acadia, downhill skiing, boating, or just spending time together.
In 2008 Marla listed her Bar Harbor home as a vacation rental with The Knowles Company and four years later came to work for Knowles. In the spring of 2016, she accepted the position as Listing Agent in the rental department and uses her experience as a vacation-home owner to assist other owners with the listing process and marketing of their cottages.
