Melody Parish

Hey all! My name is Melody, and I’m so excited to be a part of all the Rockbrook magic I’ve heard so much about for the first time this summer! I always wanted to go to summer camp growing up in the southern Indiana-Louisville, Kentucky area (aka Kentuckiana, or if you’re a real Hoosier, Indy-ucky lol) and while I wasn’t able to do that, I was lucky to grow up with plenty of time in the woods, hiking, camping and playing in the creek. I love being outside, playing music, creating art and crafts, and learning new skills, so I’m happy to be somewhere that helps campers explore theses things too. For the past six-ish years I have been a floral designer, which meshes my love of flowers and growing things with creating art. I never knew what I was missing until I came to WNC for the first time in 2020, and now I am a *brand new* Brevard resident of about two months! As a photographer among other jobs around camp this summer, I am looking forward to capturing all the joy, fun, and new experiences campers get to have together in this beautiful place!
