Hello!!! I grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina but I have always loved the mountains! I am drawn to Rockbrook because of the beautiful place we have the privilege of experiencing but mostly I am drawn to camp because of our campers! As a child, I was the camper that was crying within the first hour of arriving at camp. So I know how it feels for many campers that are a little apprehensive about coming to camp; I think that’s what makes me such an attentive and empathetic cabin counselor. I am also drawn to Rockbrook because of the caring and inclusive community that I experienced during my first summer there and I am so excited to be apart of it again! I teach dance and yoga, which I am looking forward to exploring with the campers for another summer. It brings me so much joy to be able to share my passions with young people and to be a part of this beautiful community.
