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: Vancouver, British Columbia
College: Bowdoin College

In 10th grade, I spent 50 school days on backcountry camping trips as part of a yearlong outdoor education program.

Originally from Los Angeles, California, I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and graduated in 2021 from Bowdoin College where I double majored in government and romance languages and literature. I enjoyed leading weekend and orientation trips for my peers through the Bowdoin Outing Club, and last spring, I completed leadership training through the club. I played intramural ice hockey, wrote for Bowdoin’s satirical magazine, and was involved in Model United Nations. A passionate cook and baker, I spent two summers working in a bakery and am known to keep a sourdough culture. I earned my Wilderness First Responder certification, and I love reading historical fiction and exploring new places by foot and bike.

In 2018, I was a member of Overland’s Support Staff and led New England Adventure and Berkshire Adventure, in 2019, I led Cape Cod & the Islands, and in 2021, I led Alaska Expedition. To put it simply, helping a group of Overland students laugh, learn, and come together as a team is nothing short of remarkable.
