I have worked with children and teens for over 15 years, and during much of that time, I spent my summers in a camp setting. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and worked in New York City for 10 years after receiving my Master’s from NYU. I spent three years working as a Counselor at the Reece School, which is how I got connected to Camp Reece.
I’m originally from Kansas City, Kansas and currently live in Nashville, Tennessee. My favorite activities are yoga, being in nature, spending time with my friends and hanging out with my husband and two dogs – Jackson and Kennedy. Jackson is also one of our camp dogs – he loves it there! I am excited about many things this summer – getting to know all of the amazing campers and staff, being outside all day, and going on adventures like white water rafting and high ropes!
See you this summer!
I am originally from Romania but I have been living in US since 2001. I live in Brewster, NY with my husband and my son, Markus. Right now I am a swimming instructor at Reece School but previously I worked as Aquatics supervisor at Green Chimneys School and Hillside Summer Camp for a total of 16 years.
I love sports and I love to read and go on hikes.
I love to meet new campers every year as much as I love to meet new counselors. I think camp is a great environment to create lifelong friendships. Can’t wait to meet everyone this summer.
