CounselorNew Staff

Laila has attended camp as a child & is excited to be back in a place she loves in a new role!

What is one thing you can't live without?

My water bottle!!! I cannot leave the house without it!

Would you rather run a marathon, bungee jump, or go scuba diving?

Okay so running a marathon is for sure on my bucket list and would be such an amazing accomplishment, buttt I am a big thrill seeker and bungee jumping just sounds too fun not to do!!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be & why?

Although I already live in Black Mountain, I truly can't think of any place I'd rather live!! I see God's goodness so evidently in those beautiful mountains of His!! Also a HUGE fan of hiking and there is simply no better place for it!

If you could travel back in time to any historical event, which one would it be?

I think it would be super duper cool to travel back to the time period of the birth of Jesus!!

What are you most excited for this summer?

I am most excited to see and experience the joy of the Lord through these campers and staffers around me! Also just so pumped to have fun all summer long!!

What are you praying for in anticipation of this summer?

For this summer, I am praying that the campers will be challenged to develop a genuine relationship with Jesus and that their hearts will be receptive to His love. My counselors had a huge influence on my walk with Jesus when I was a camper, and I hope that this summer's campers will have a similar experience!!!!
