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: Kansas City, KS
College: Vanderbilt University

As a child of two world travelers and foodies, I have luckily been able to travel to eight different countries between Latin America and Europe, as well as many amazing states in the US.

Raised in Kansas City, Kansas, I graduated from Vanderbilt University in the spring of 2021 with a major in Human & Organizational Development, with specific coursework in Leadership management. I was deeply involved in activities on campus– I was the Publicity Chair for my dance club VIDA Latin Dance, I worked as a Student Administrator in the Vanderbilt Office of Commencement and Special Events where I helped plan graduation ceremonies and other festivities, and was also a member of the Vanderbilt Spirit Team as a Mic Man, where I was the general “hype man” for the student section at sporting events. I loved to spend my free time playing guitar, learning new languages (Spanish and Italian so far), and keeping active by playing sports with friends and enjoying my local kickboxing gym.

I’m excited to lead for Overland because while I have worked with kids as a summer camp counselor in the past, this will be a completely new experience in a new place, and I’m excited to mix things up and have a brand new adventure.
