Master's / Education Specialist in School Psychology
I am so looking forward to my 7th year at Running Brook Camps - it is a dream come true to be able to spend my time thinking about how best to support everyone in the RBC community.
My very first job was at a performing arts summer camp, and I have fostered my passion for working with children in various capacities since then. Down the road a little, I received my Master's degree in Child Study & Human Development with a concentration in Clinical Psychology from Tufts University. For five years, I worked as a kindergarten/first-grade teacher at the FUSE School which focuses on social-emotional development. Besides camp, I am currently continuing my education at Tufts towards a degree and licensure in School Psychology.
One of my favorite things to do is learn everything I can about a child - from their favorite color to their biggest worry - and use that knowledge to support them in challenging situations. There is nothing more powerful than a positive and compassionate connection, and that is what I strive to create with campers, families, and counselors alike! Outside of work, I love reading, swimming, going on outdoor adventures, and spending quality time with friends and family. I can't wait to dress up, wear wacky socks, try new things, and meet a whole bunch of new friends at camp this summer!
