Hello! I have worked at summer camps on the Jersey Shore for the last 10 years. During my time there, I was a counselor, a lifeguard, a performing arts specialist, and a member of the leadership team. During the school year, I am a special education teacher at HEC Academy in Northampton where I teach history. I am currently in my first year of graduate school at Baypath University and will be graduating with a degree in clinical mental health counseling. In my spare time, I like to swim and find new hiking spots in the valley. When I’m not spending time outdoors, you can usually find me at the local seasonal farmers markets or reading in coffee shops.
What are you looking forward to as the new Teen Expeditions Director?
First and foremost, I am looking forward to getting to know all the campers I will be working with. I am also excited to go on trips and explore more of the area.
What do you enjoy most about working with teenagers?
Working at a high school has taught me that there is never a dull moment when working with teenagers. They are such a fun, interesting age group that is sure to keep you on your toes. I can also really appreciate that they are generally better at technology than I am.
What is your favorite thing about camp?
My favorite things about camp are the friendships you build and the memories you make! I always had a blast when I was a camper, which is why I chose to continue working at camps as an adult.
