I was born in Emporia KS, the founding city of Veterans Day! I spent two years in Shreveport LA before moving to Chadron NE. I grew up in Camping Ministries; I have done just about every job you can imagine at a Camp, from scrubbing toilets to programming. Camping is my passion; I enjoy making a difference in the live s of others. I can honestly say that Camp makes me a better person. No two days are the same and I am constantly growing and learning.
When I have down time you can find me hiking, playing fetch with my dogs, brushing my horses, horseback riding, painting, practicing my archery shot, or going on a drive to explore towns and places around Chadron.
I am currently working on my Recreation Degree at Butler Community College. I am planning on transferring to Chadron State College in the fall.
I completed the Basic Camp Directors Course offered by ACA. I am certified as a Lifeguard Instructor, this allows me to teach and certify individuals in first aide, CPR, AED, blood borne pathogens, lifeguarding, and wilderness first aide. I am a grade 5 water operator. I am certified as an archery instructor. I am also Safe Gatherings Certified. This year I am planning on becoming an ACA visitor and also getting my ropes course certification.
