Growing up in Back Bay, Boston, Cary first came to Nantucket in the late seventies after her family bought a saltbox in Dionis. She graduated from Emma Willard School, attended Skidmore College and later returned to Nantucket after graduating from Chamberlain School of Retailing in Boston. In addition to managing several shops on Nantucket (including the beloved Best of the Beach,) Cary successfully raised the capital necessary to become a co-owner of The Westender Restaurant in Madaket, and subsequently managed the restaurant’s finances and accounting. Cary has also served as the Financial Secretary for the First Congregational Church.
Cary has been a full-time island resident since 1994, and lives with her husband Jeff, a private charter pilot, her two teenagers Alden and Jackson, and their golden doodle, Woodstock. The Turners live in an antique home that they moved from Quaise to Miacomet in 2001 after seeing it up for demolition in the local newspaper. We are pleased to welcome a seasoned year-round local business woman like Cary to our team.
