Favorite Places to Recreate (Bike, Climb, Paddle) 

One of my most favorite places to paddle are the natural springs of Florida. My husband and I love to paddle around Weeki Wachee Springs to see the manatees!


I started with Charleston County Parks in 2013 as an Explorers Camp counselor. From there, I quickly discovered how I much I enjoyed using my early childhood educational background in an outdoor recreation setting. I continued to work for Explorers Camp for the next few summers, taking on leadership roles and eventually became the lead youth program aide after I graduated from the College of Charleston in 2015. I take much pride in the work we do with our youth programs and I enjoy leading others in doing the same. I left CCPRC in 2019 when I got married to my husband, who currently serves in the United States Coast Guard. I recently moved back to Charleston, and I am very excited to be home!
