Dear Families & Campers, 

After three incredible summers as a Summer at Breakwater teacher, I am absolutely thrilled to be stepping into my new role as Director of Summer Programming! I have watched this community thrive and grow under the leadership of so many talented individuals and cannot express how excited I am to continue to make Summer at Breakwater the best place to be. 

At Breakwater, there are so many different opportunities available each summer to enrich each child's experience, regardless of whether their interest is in theater, sports, exploring nature, visual arts, science or music. Summer is also such a wonderful time to try something new and discover an interest you never knew you had!

I was so lucky to grow up spending my summers in New England attending various summer camps. It has become such an important part of who I am today both as an educator and an individual. It feels only natural that my mission has become helping others make the most out of their summer experience. There is no better place to make this happen than Breakwater.  

As I step into this new role, I also look forward to continuing to share my passion for science and all the natural beauty Maine has to offer. Needless to say, I will be counting down the days until our summer community is together again!
