Lanita Medina, Office Party Coordinator
Lanita Medina, Dr. Medina’s wife, worked as a RN at the Infant Heart Transplant Center and Pediatrics at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California before moving to Maine. Her favorite job is being a mom to Kandice, Benjamin, Krista and Kami, and enjoyed the years she was able to homeschool them.
Pictures have always been an important part of her life, and as she made scrapbook albums for each of her kids, she realized how much meaning the photos and their stories were in the children’s lives, helping to affirm them, pass on family values and provide great entertainment. Other people started asking how this was done and she became a Creative Memories Consultant and Personal Photo Organizer. She has been actively teaching others how to organize, preserve and enjoy their photos for 22 years. Through the years she has taught Photo organizing classes, held workshops and large Scrapbooking retreats.
