Riding Staff

2nd year on staff

Hey guys! I am currently a senior at the University of Tennessee at Martin, where I am finishing up nursing school and also compete on our NCAA equestrian team! I will be teaching riding down at the barn, and also helping out at the Health Hut a few days a week! Can’t wait to be back at Greystone for another awesome summer!

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

Personal Interests? Equestrian, ceramics, traveling, farmer’s markets, summertime, the lake, ice cream, and hanging out with my friends!

When I have an hour of free time, I like to… Hang out with my dog

Best camp tradition? Derby Day!

Favorite Evening Program? Protect Your Counselor

Sing? Dance? Or both? a little singing and a lot of dancing

Item that I MUST bring to Camp with me…. Stationary to write letters

Something you wouldn’t guess about me… I don’t go by my first name

Last book I read… My nursing textbook

Hidden talent? somehow always dropping stuff I’m holding in my hand

If my life could have a theme song, it would be…. anything by Shania Twain

The best thing about camp will be… The amazing riding staff of course!!
