What is your role at camp this summer? This summer, I will be offering pottery and assisting in other art areas around camp.

What three words best describe you? Cheerful, spontaneous, and patient.

If you could be any kind of food what would you be and why? I would be broccoli because only the coolest people in the world like broccoli.

What does working at a summer camp mean to you? Summer camp is such an important part of childhood! I love every aspect of camp from meeting new people, getting to spend the summer in the mountains, and making a difference in campers’ lives. If I could be at camp all year round, I would be one happy camper 🙂

What about camp are you most looking forward to? I am most excited about making new friends and growing as a teacher. The view won’t be too bad, either.

If you could be a super hero, what super hero would you be and what would your super powers be? If I were a super hero, I would be Cat Woman- but not the one you’re thinking of. My power would be to summon cats wherever I am so I can pet them. I wouldn’t be able to save the world, but I could make people happy with all the sweet kitties to love.
