Recently retired after 38 years, she worked with New Ventures Maine, a statewide organization that helps Maine people create their own path to a career by finding jobs, continuing with education or starting a small business. The Maine Small Business Administration has recognized Sen. Vitelli’s career in economic development, which also included serving for many years on the Maine Economic Growth Council. In 1995 she was inducted into the Maine Women’s Hall of Fame.

Sen. Vitelli is the mother of two grown sons, and lives with her husband, Bob, in the home she built in Arrowsic after attending the Shelter Institute.
