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: Morristown, New Jersey
College: Bucknell University

At Bucknell University, I was a four-year executive board member of the Mock Trial team, and I served as president during my senior year.

Originally from Morristown, New Jersey, I graduated in 2019 from Bucknell, where I studied political science and economics. Although I spent most of my free time with the Mock Trial team, I also served as an intramural coordinator and led frequent hiking and mountain biking trips. I am currently in my first year of law school and in my free time I like to mountain bike, trail run, and fish. During the colder months, I enjoy and skiing with family and friends in the Colorado backcountry.

In 2018, I led Service & Hiking New England. In 2019, I led Service and Hiking Maine.  I love leading for Overland and facilitating a great group of students while we tackle challenges as an incredible team.
