John Drake

John has spent a large part of his life on the move having grown up in Virginia, Hawaii, and Maine. After meeting his wife Beth at James Madison University, they embarked on a decade long voyage through New York City, Sydney, and Monterey, CA before finally landing themselves in York, ME with their three children – Cary, Charlie, and Elise. His love of travel – much like with nature – comes from the heightened state of awareness he gets when learning through immersion in new experiences, cultures, and especially food. John is ecstatic at the opportunity to use his 15+ years in finance to help grow and protect the mission of White Pines Programs.
