Executive Leadership Team

Goodwill’s Executive Leadership Team are organization leaders who oversee operations, including Finances, Human Resources, and Mission Services. These individuals play a key role in the nonprofit.

Rebecca Ermlich, Executive Office Manager

Rebecca doesn’t have a single most admired person. She said, “The world is full of people changing the world for the better in big and small ways every day. It’s a good reminder that we don’t necessarily have to do BIG things to be an inspiration. In our everyday life, we each have the power to inspire and be a force for good.” 

Rebecca enjoys renovating old houses because both her grandparents lived in “quirky, old houses” that she was fascinated by. She said, “It’s hard work and takes time, but it’s very rewarding to know you are taking care of a piece of the past and preserving it for the future. I also love gardening and running with friends.” 

Rebecca’s family loves exploring Maine together. “Many years ago, when my son was a baby, we decided to spend a week on Vinalhaven on the recommendation of a friend. Fifteen years later, we still go back every summer,” she said. “It is a magical place of fairy forests and swimming quarries, fog and granite, seals and lobster boats, rusty trucks and old cottages. It is not fancy; it is heartbreakingly beautiful.”

Sandra Monfiletto, Senior Vice President of Human Resources

Sandra’s most admired person is Margaret Mead. She said, “Some of my favorite quotes are from anthropologist Margaret Mead: ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’ & ‘Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.’” 

Sandra enjoys nutrition. She said, “I love to research low carb nutrition and experiment with preparing delicious keto meals.” 

Sandra’s favorite place on earth is Disney World. “The magical world that is created through sight, sound, smell and pixie dust transports me to a space where if you can dream it, you can do it,” she said.

Sherri Evans, Chief Financial Officer

Sherri’s most admired person is her mom. She said, “My mom is the kindest, most patient and empathetic person I know. I strive to be more like her every day.” 

Sherri enjoys miniatures. She said, “My current project is an abandoned dollhouse built with repurposed materials from our Buy the Pound!” 

Sherri’s favorite place on earth is her home. She said, “there’s no place I’d rather be!”

Trendy Stanchfield, Senior Vice President of Mission Services

Trendy’s most admired person is her grandmother. She said, “From the day I remember meeting her, she was my inspiration for her kindness to everyone she met, honesty even if you didn’t like the feedback, and unmatched work ethic in every part of her life.”  

Trendy enjoys gardening. “There is something so wonderful about having your hands in the dirt and soaking up Mother Nature’s goodness,” she said.  

Trendy’s favorite place on earth is the coast of Maine because of its “remarkable history, beautiful ruggedness, and stunning scenes even on the worst of days.” 

Tripp Harrison, President and CEO

Tripp’s most admired person is Nelson Mandela. He said, “Nelson Mandela showed the world that even the most seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome with courage and perseverance, similarly to how we help those we serve at Goodwill achieve their dreams.” 

Tripp is a weekend warrior in the kitchen.  He said, “Having attended culinary school and having an early career as a chef, prior to joining Goodwill, I still have that creative culinary itch to make awesome food and share it with those around me. Food brings people together and helps create a connection with one another.” 

Tripp’s favorite place on earth is Koblenz, Germany because he spent a summer there studying wine. “This city is so memorable for many reasons, and I hope to get back to it one day. Mountainside vineyards lining the Mosel and Rhine rivers, lush forests, and four mountain ranges shape the unique backdrop to this 2,000+ year-old city. French joie de vivre and German tradition have produced a truly unique cultural fusion in Koblenz, characterized by cozy wine taverns, delicious cuisine, narrow alleyways, historic architecture, and an authentic, welcoming atmosphere that makes for an incredible experience,” he said. 


CARF Accreditation

Goodwill regularly analyzes the performance of our programs by tracking and reporting efficiency and effectiveness outcome measures. Goodwill recently received its ninth Three-Year accreditation from CARF, Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Three-Year Accreditation

The CARF Three-Year accreditation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

Goodwill NNE receives three-year CARF accreditation

Goodwill Industries of Northern New England has been issued a three-year accreditation from CARF International. The accreditation ensures clients and their families that Goodwill NNE is committed to delivering the highest quality service through its Employment, Residential and Brain Injury programs.

The CARF survey, conducted in April, found a culture of collaboration between Goodwill NNE and individuals (clients and employees) and also between the agency and the communities it serves. The Board of Directors were noted for being committed to leadership and deeply involved in strategic planning.

CARF also recognized Goodwill NNE’s ambitious goal of helping to move 10,000 households into stability in its territory, with the report saying, “Under this aggressive goal, stability goes beyond being out of poverty.”

Clients described Goodwill NNE’s services as meeting their specific needs. One client said services were “off the charts on the positive end.”

Each year, Goodwill NNE served nearly 100 clients in its residences, 900 people with acquired brain injury and more than 32,000 people in its workforce programs.

The accreditation, which is extended through April 30, 2025, applies to eight of Goodwill NNE’s Employment Services, Residential and Brain Injury programs.

  • Community Employment Services: Employment Supports
  • Community Employment Services: Job Development
