Community Hero Spotlight: Ella Finn

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.



April 2018 Community Heroes

Ella Finn arrived on the shores of Nantucket from Ireland 31 years ago as a J1 Visa holder. Like many before her, she fell in love with the island and decided to make it her home. As a registered nurse on Nantucket, she has dedicated her time, energy and skills to The Landmark House. For more than 100 years, The Landmark House has provided secure housing for lower income elders in one of the most beautiful locations on Nantucket. Ella helps ensure that those staying at The Landmark House have a dignified and well-equipped home.

Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Ella Finn is sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Foundation to The Nantucket Landmark House.


Thank you, Ella, for your continued care and dedication to elders on the island.
