While working at Campus Rec I have learned to not take myself too seriously. I have been encouraged to lean into silliness and vulnerability with others. Personally, I have gained trust and confidence in my own abilities as a leader. From tying fancy knots to backcountry pancake cooking on a camp stove, I have been exposed to new outdoor adventure skills. Professionally, I have grown to be a better communicator, organizer, and planner. Working at Campus Rec has instilled a love for continual learning and growth that I will carry with me throughout my adventures ahead.

FUN FACT: My friend and I shaved our heads to raise money for the Orange County Rape Crisis Center this year.
