Day Camp Director
How long have you worked at Camp?
I joined the director team in September of 2023, but I have worked for Camp Kanata since 2015.
Were you a camper and/or counselor before?
I was a camper for 8 years, starting in 2006. I was a trainee for two years as well before becoming a cabin counselor. I spent a summer in Cabin 4 and then another in Cabin 17 before becoming Hilton Unit Leader. After that, I spent the summers of 2019, 2021, and 2022 on Ad Staff as a Program Coordinator.
What is your Favorite Camp Memory?
My favorite camp memory was my first Unit Night as a Hilton Counselor. I had the best time joking around with my campers around the fire while we all tried to roast the perfect marshmallow.
Where were you born?
I was born in Durham but grew up in Carrboro, NC.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
For a short while, I wanted to be a paleontologist, but that quickly turned into wanting to be a teacher like my mom. I actually got a degree in education and my teaching license before deciding that I wanted to come back to camp.
What is the most important thing you've learned in life?
You are never done learning and some of the best (and funniest) lessons come from the kids you work with.
What is your favorite thing/hobby and why?
I have always loved movies so sitting down early with a huge bowl of popcorn, plenty of snacks, and a marathon ready to go is my favorite kind of day.
