Home City/State: Red Cloud, Nebraska

Number of Years on staff: This is my third year on staff. I have served the past two years as a counselor and this is my first year on program team.

School and Major/Area of Study: I just finished my Junior year at Concordia University, NE where I am studying Early Childhood Inclusive Education and working on my Lutheran Teacher’s Diploma.

Why are you excited to work at Camp Luther this summer? My absolute favorite gift from God is people! Camp is the perfect place to meet so many brothers and sisters in Christ both young and old.  So I am excited to meet all the new faces at camp this year.

Who is one of your favorite Bible characters? Peter is one of my favorites. He always tried so hard to say the right things, but often fell flat, just like me. But then he learned to let the Spirit do all the heavy lifting and made a huge impact!

What is your favorite Bible verse? Isaiah 43:2 “When you pass through waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

What is your favorite camp activity? I love YPI (you pick it) it’s a great time to learn new skills that can help me share God’s love in new ways.

If you could have any super power, what would it be, and why? When I’m not at camp… I am a hurdler on Concordia’s track team. So super speed would come in really handy!
