What have you been up to since Camp?

Work wise, I’ve enjoyed being able to continue my career in the field I fell in love with at MCC… recreation! I earned my B.S. in Recreation and Leisure Studies from Southern Connecticut State University and then a M.B.A. from Southern New Hampshire University, which have helped me excel at work and to be promotable. Personally, I have three amazing children (who cannot wait to be old enough for overnight camp!) and a wonderful husband.

What’s your favorite part about Camp?

My favorite part about camp was knowing that everyone could let their individuality shine. Camp was, and is, truly a place where everyone could express themselves and be accepted for the things that make us all unique. Being different was embraced and expressing yourself was such a fun part of any camp day. Whether it was singing outside the dining hall, painting in arts and crafts, or hiking in the woods, each and every person at camp had an outlet to truly be themselves.
