My professional camping and YMCA background began over two decades ago at my first Y camp in Holly, Michigan. I have worked mostly in the Midwest, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. I am thrilled to now be in the beautiful Mountain west, specifically here in Colorado, working for Camp Shady Brook and the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region. My family and I are excited to be part of this community and look forward to many years building great camp memories. Camp Shady Brook is a safe place where you and your family can grow closer together participating in activities that are enriching, educational and fun. Please let me know how I can help make your CSB experience once-in-a-lifetime, or simply tell me some of your camp stories. I look forward to meeting you soon.

My camp background started in Indiana in the summer of 2007. After six years in Indiana, I was given the opportunity to join the team here at Camp Shady Brook. I am greatly excited to start my career with an organization such as the Pikes Peak YMCA, and devote myself to providing great experiences to the youth and families that we serve. Camp Shady Brook is a special place that provides programs that are empowering, educational and fun! We would love the opportunity to share those experiences with your friends, family or students.

I have a long history with YMCA programming. Growing up, I was involved with preschool, swim lessons, youth sports and swim team at the Y, as well as frequenting the gym. It was after serving my first summer as a day camp counselor that I decided to dedicate my life to the YMCA camping movement. I received my bachelor’s degree in Youth Development from Springfield College (formerly known as the International YMCA Training School). I have a passion for developing intentional, outcome-based programming and sharing my love for the outdoors with young people. I have served on the leadership teams of several other summer camps specializing in program opportunities from sailing to mountain biking to wilderness survival. I could not be more thrilled to be a part of the magic here at Camp Shady Brook.
