Assistant Program Director - Fox Landing

In 2006, I attended Fox Landing for the first time as a camper with the YMCA.

I vividly remember snorkeling through the kelp forests, trying archery and paddle boarding for the first time, and working up the courage to tell a joke in front of the crowd at campfire. It was an extremely formative experience for me, and I have not missed a summer since. After graduating from college, I realized that I wanted to spend more than one week each year at Fox Landing. In 2018, I fulfilled my dream of becoming a CIMI instructor and turned my favorite place on Earth into my home. Today, I am humbled to serve as the Assistant Program Director at Fox Landing. During my time at CIMI, I acquired my Captain’s License and USA Archery certification, and grew our social media following to over 30,000 people as Social Media Coordinator. I am a proud Foxy and feel so lucky to be here each day.

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
