BANGOR, Maine — The Wellness Council of Maine has hired Roxane Dubay of Old Town as the organization’s newest executive director.

Roxane comes to the Wellness Council of Maine from the University of Maine New Balance Student Recreation Center, where she served as lead fitness instructor. Roxane’s experience includes fitness positions with the Bangor and Old Town YMCAs, where she served as fitness director at the Bangor location. She also ran her own business, Women’s Fitness Studio, for several years.

Roxane will lead the more than 100-member statewide organization, which works to advance and promote good health among businesses and organizations across Maine.

Her strong proficiency and skill in the health and wellness fields made Roxane a choice candidate for the position, according to John Porter, president and CEO for the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce, the Wellness Council’s parent organization, in a press release.

“Not only is Roxane very knowledgeable in the field of wellness, but she can relate well to small business owners, having run a business herself. We are confident the Wellness Council of Maine’s members will benefit from both her business and wellness expertise,” Porter said.

Paige Allen, chair of the Wellness Council of Maine’s Executive Committee, echoed Porter’s sentiments. “We are very excited to have Roxane as executive director,” Allen said. “She will be especially skilled in relating to small businesses and helping them to implement and retain successful wellness programs.”

Roxane begins on June 24, and will be working out of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce offices. She can be contacted at
