Georgen Charnes, a co-Captain of People & Pets, washed ashore ten years ago and soon thereafter met and married a local descendent of the first proprietors of Nantucket. Soon thereafter, she bore a child at the ripe age of 44, and life changed. She now juggles working for pay, vacuuming up dog hair, playdate arranging, and volunteering in the community while trying to raise her daughter to be a confident, considerate, and open-minded person. Trained in preserving and creating access to historic manuscripts and photographs, she recently co-authored (with James Grieder, Nantucket Chronicle captain) Images of America: Nantucket, published by Arcadia Press. In her spare time, she creates web and social media outlets for several local nonprofits, and putters in the garden.
