Janice Drake, Store Manager


Janice moved to Newburyport MA five years ago, after living in the United Kingdom and Framingham MA, with her husband Tim. They decided to retire to Newburyport and started volunteering at the Custom House in the fall of 2021. Janice took on the management of the Custom House Maritime Museum Shop in March. “I am thrilled to have the position and feel it is the culmination of many of my interests and professional experiences.” Janice is interested in making the museum shop a unique shopping experience of the best of Newburyport. She intends to collaborate with local creators, highlighting the nautical theme of Newburyport and the North Shore.
