Education: Psychology, B.S. May 2012

Hometown: Asheville, NC

Experience with Children: Last summer I worked at the Morehead Summer Camps mainly with rising kindergarten and first graders. That was one of the most enjoyable groups I had the opportunity to work with. Prior to that, I volunteered at the hospital with pediatric patients and worked as a tutor for elementary school children.

Goals for Summer and Career: This summer I want to make sure each camper, from the quiet scientist to the rambunctious student, has fun here at camp. Also, making sure I manage to have a little fun along the way is important. As for my career, I will be attending the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in the Fall 2012 to become a Physician. Eventually I hope to work in family medicine.

Hobbies/Fun Fact: I really like baking chocolate cakes and brownies, mostly because I have a sweet tooth. Also, I learned how to drive and boat and jet sky recently.

Last summer I just wanted a job that wouldn't be too time consuming while I studied. But I didn't realize how much fun I had with kids and how much I actually like teaching. I couldn't pass it up again this summer.
