As camp director for Camp Courage, it is my goal to assemble a quality camp for all participants. I was a teacher at the Balarat Outdoor Education Center for twenty years and a classroom teacher before that. Pre-teaching years were spent with the Forest Service as a Backcountry Ranger and Firefighter. I was once an avid climber, skier and mountain biker. Now, my outdoor adventures revolve around pursuing these same activities in a tamer fashion as well as introducing outdoor activities and sports to my two children.
