I have always had a passion for children and adults with special needs. My service-oriented attitude is directly tied to my parents, both of whom were deaf. They became highly active in their community and organizations, raising money and awareness as needed. Watching them give back to the community had a large influence on me and helped to direct my career path.

My adventures at camp began in 2016 and my passion for being here has continued to grow every year. I look forward to building relationships with families and creating unforgettable experiences for all those that come to camp.

My camp story started in 2002 when I arrived at as an International Camp Counselor. I returned for a second summer, and realized that working at camp was one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever done, and still is. Seeing the campers' smiles, hearing their laughs, and sharing their greatest moments assures me that we are making a difference and providing great experiences!

I graduated with my BSN from Kent State University and have been working as a Registered Nurse since 2014. I've been blessed with the opportunity to work with diverse populations within the medical field- including those with disabilities. I am looking forward to the camp life and am grateful to now be part of the amazing YMCA family here at the Akron Rotary Camp.
