FRYEBURG — Sharon Gendreau, the new finance director for the Town of Fryeburg, has been practicing bookkeeping, since she was 16

years old.

Gendreau, now 40 years old and who grew up in Madawaska, further developed her bookkeeping skills, while earning both an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Maine in Orono.

She began her duties here on Jan. 3, after having served as finance and personnel administrator for the Town of Paris for two years where she reported to Fryeburg Town Manager Sharon Jackson, who came here nearly a year ago.

Asked why she chose to come to Fryeburg, Gendreau replied, “I wanted a change from Paris, and I loved working for Sharon in Paris.”

Gendreau’s duties here include payroll and benefits administration.

“I call myself a paper pusher,” said Gendreau. “I am reorganizing the town’s financial records and making sure everything’s up to standards.”
