Meet Board & Brush Portland Owners

Lori Goddard & Brittny Daly

Lori and Brittny are a mother-daughter team. Lori previously worked in the dental field for over 20 years and also owned two very successful Curves franchises. Brittny studied Neuroscience at Bates College and earned her Master's Degree at Northeastern University. She worked as a physician assistant for the past seven years in family practice and urgent care, but after the birth of her second son, she decided to leave her job in order to have more time with her family. When Brittny learned about Board & Brush, she thought it would be perfect for her entrepreneurial spirited mom, Lori, but quickly realized it would be a great opportunity for them both! 

They opened their first studio, Board & Brush Portsmouth NH in 2017 and their second in Amherst, NH 2018! They love the hard work and joy that comes with creating their studios and are very excited to open their third location in Portland, which will be the first in Maine! Lori and Brittny love working together, doing DIY projects and truly enjoy teaching others how to make beautiful projects at Board & Brush! Lori and her husband, Bob, live in NH with their German Shepherd, Kade. Lori has four amazing adult children, Brittny, Alyssa, Kylie and Travis and daughter and son-in-law’s who all, in some way, help and are a part of Board and Brush! Lori loves spending time with her family which included 6 incredible grandchildren Brittny and her husband, Matt have two adorable, active young boys, Miles and Porter, who keep them very busy! They have a love for all things Maine; they met in college in Maine, married at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, held their reception at the lobster shack (lobster is now their 5 year old’s favorite food...expensive date!) and are raising their family in Maine.
