Tracy Rousseau, Board Director
I hail from a small country town in New York not far from NYC, I attended and graduated from Dutchess Community College, then moved to Boston to study business, and graduated with honors from Northeastern University, with a BS-BA in Business Administration. For a few years I traveled all over the east coast installing computer systems in small to large automotive dealerships to computerize their manual business systems and train staff. In 1993 I moved to Manchester, New Hampshire to accept a position as an IT manager for a large corporation. I have worked for the State of NH in a range of duties serving the citizens of NH in, unemployment services, tax revenues, and homeland security for IT support. My current duties have me in Boston, MA for United States Dept. of Labor, in the Employment & Training Administration agency, as an Unemployment Insurance Specialist. I have been a Goffstown resident since 1999, and raised a daughter who has graduated from GHS, SNHU, and MCPHS, she is currently a covid nurse at Concord Hospital. I am a passion dancer and dance, perform and compete in Ballroom and Latin dancing in NH, MA, RI, NY, and CT. I look forward to applying my skills and giving back by volunteering for our community through the Goffstown Main Street Program.
Aimee Duval, Administrative Assistant
"Creating long-lasting relationships is my jam, and that's no different when it comes to the business owners on Main Street. I think building and fostering a community is one of the best ways to ensure success for everyone. And, of course, I do love to shop... I grew up in a small town similar to Goffstown in Southern Massachusetts, so I love the homey feel of a small town. I've been living in Goffstown for the last 4 years and I've enjoyed exploring all Goffstown has to offer, from the shops and restaurants to the captivating views while driving through the countryside. I love traveling whenever I have the time to experience what different cities and towns have to offer. When I'm not working as a Realtor, you can find me cuddled up with my cat, puppy and boyfriend watching scary movies and enjoying local take out.
Elizabeth St. Jean, Board Secretary
Growing up in a small town in Northern, Maine I knew what it felt like to be in a community that cherished creating memories for families through events and activities. When I was searching for my home with my husband, we wanted to find a home in a town that had a Main Street community; one that focused on community events that bring townspeople together, and one that focused on the importance of small businesses and local entrepreneurs. After touring many houses in Goffstown we walked downtown, stopping into small businesses and talking with the owners asking, "What do you enjoy about living in Goffstown?" The answers were amazingly consistent with being a family-centered town, having community events that we shouldn't miss like The Pumpkin Regatta, Halloween Trick-or-Treating and the Tree Lighting. After those conversations, we knew we had found our community. When I saw the opportunity arise for new board members on the Main Street Program, I knew that I had to take the opportunity to be a part of the pulse of Goffstown and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am incredibly proud to bring passion, new ideas, volunteer opportunities and out-of-the-box thinking to our community through my position and am so proud to serve the Town of Goffstown in my role. I can't wait to meet more of my neighbors through this opportunity and continue to keep our tight knit community one that cherishes gathering our community together through thoughtfully curated community events.
