Hey there!! My name is Mary and I am beyond excited to be returning to camp for the centennial and see everyone’s lovely faces again! I am a rising sophomore at Davidson College on the pre-medicine track, and I couldn’t be happier to be on staff. I am going to be working 1st session this summer for the first time (I used to go 2nd). My grandmother and both my aunts on my dad’s side of the family grew up working at Rockbrook, so I am very happy to continue on the tradition in the heart of the wooded mountain 🙂 I love the rainy summers in Brevard more than anything, and I am so excited to hit up Dolly’s again, go for some runs on the trails, and just be back in this wonderful community for another summer. My favorite place on camp has to be sitting on the Hillside Lodge in a rocking chair with bracelets and a book.

Back at home in Atlanta are my parents, and my brother William who is a rising junior in high school. We also have a dog, Max, and a cat named Scout. At school, I am involved in club soccer, I am a tour guide (for any interested rising juniors or seniors), and I am an avid participant in outdoor activities like hiking and running! I grew up involved in music from piano, to musicals, to my current a cappella group at my college, the Davidson Delilahs! I love putting myself out there especially when it comes to music, so I fit right in at the dining hall amidst all the songs and chants. I think camp encourages campers to really be the best version of themselves and truly provides friends that you will have for life, and I am so excited to be back … I can’t wait!
