AstroCamp Summer Program Director
My story begins back in 2016. I met Michelle, the School Year Program Director, at Physcon during my senior year of college.
After talking with her about AstroCamp, I went to check out the website. Having grown up in the Boy Scouts and having attended numerous summer camps as both camper and counselor, I thought, “Oh yeah! This place looks right up my alley! Not to mention, I would be working in my degree field. Winning!”
I started as a Cabin Counselor in summer 2017 and continued as an Instructor through summer 2019. In that time I took on many roles, from training to administration. I am grateful and honored to serve as the new Summer Program Director for AstroCamp.
Camp introduced me to mountain biking during my first summer, which became a big passion of mine. Nowadays when I’m not at camp, I’m building mountain bike trails in Northwest Arizona.
