Farm Camp Director


“I grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and began my camp journey at YMCA Camp Potawotami in Indiana. There I started out as a counselor in 2015 and for the last six summers have also been waterfront supervisor, assistant program director and operations director. The farm is such a welcoming and diverse place where campers can learn about the daily operations of a working farm while practicing sustainable living. Camp has become a very important part of my life and I am excited to take on the role of farm camp director!”
