We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Hometown: Summit, New Jersey
College: St. Lawrence University

A seven-time Overland student, I spent my summers hiking on Yellowstone Adventure, Rocky Mountain Explorer, Northwest Explorer, High Sierra Explorer, Yellowstone Teton Leadership, Alpine Challenge, and Alaska Leadership.

Originally from Summit, New Jersey, I am a sophomore at St. Lawrence University, where I enjoy studying history and the environment. At St. Lawrence, I immediately involved myself with activities on campus. I am an EMT for our school EMS service, and I work for the local fire department. I have also been involved in several theatre productions. Growing up, Overland allowed me to discover a love for outdoor adventure–which I carry with me today — and become part of a one-of-a-kind community.

In 2019,  I worked on Overland’s support staff and led Berkshire Adventure. It was exciting to be back as a leader to be a part of the Overland family once again. Everyone involved wants nothing but the best for our students, and that energy is infectious.
