Prior to joining the SAPARS team in January, 2015, Kayce was the Client Services Manager and later the Director of Client Services at Sexual Assault Support Services of Midcoast Maine (SASSMM). In that capacity, she managed multiple programs, led school-based education presentations, conducted community and professional trainings and facilitated support groups. Kayce worked at SASSMM for over 14 years.
Kayce was a core committee member in writing, Help In Healing, A Training Guide for Advocates, which is used by sexual assault support centers across Maine.

While a student at UMF, she worked at the LEAP Corporation and upon graduation accepted a position at Tri-County Mental Health Services (TCMHS) as a Case Manager. Kayce spent a couple of years at TCMHS before accepting a position at SASSMM and moving to the Midcoast area. In 2007, Kayce moved back to the Farmington area and commuted to her job at SASSMM.
“I am happy and excited to be working in Franklin County again. I feel honored to have been selected to join the team at Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services. This opportunity allows me to continue to be engaged in the important work of sexual violence prevention and response and also allows me to work much closer to where I live,” says Kayce.
