Gail Malitas, Office Administrator
Gail MalitasGail comes to Apple Hill with a varied background. She spent over 15 years as an outside sales rep of industrial products, then parlayed that experience into being a major gift officer at Northfield Mount Hermon School. It helped that she had been a class agent for her Bowdoin class, raising money for the Alumni Fund, for years.

After leaving NMH, she joined the Keene Chorale and was asked to serve on the board, where she is now the Fundraising Chair. She also serves on the board of Monadnock Arts Alive! and Raylynmor Opera.

She started with Apple Hill as a grant writer, and in the summer of 2013 filled in for Amelia as Summer Coordinator for a month. In November of that year she came on as Administrative Coordinator and continues as such.
