Born and raised in Virginia, I grew up at YMCA Camp Silver Beach. Over the years, I have journeyed from camper to counselor to summer lead staff and eventually to program director. The YMCA has given me a passion for helping others and creating positive change in the community. I studied Political Science & International Relations at Virginia Wesleyan College. Advice for Campers: Don’t hold back – be the most amazing version of yourself you can possibly be! Camp will change your life forever.
