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.

I’ve been fascinated with nature since I was a young child, with my most recent outdoorsy adventure being a WWOOFer for 8 weeks at a goat dairy farm in South Carolina.

Born in Seoul, South Korea and lived most of my life in Charlotte, North Carolina, I graduated from Williams College this spring of 2021 with a dual degree in Economics and Philosophy. I spent most of my summers interning in the public policy sector, specifically in immigration and economic policy. This fall, I’m headed to DC to work as a legal assistant in public interest litigation. Academically, I focused on environmental macroeconomics and ethics, which led to various interesting intersections between the economy, the environment, and governmental responsibility. I also worked as a tutor at the Writing workshop and the local middle school, and I was recently inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. Outside of academics at Williams, I was involved with Sankofa, which is the Williams Step team, was on the board of Questbridge, a club that helps out low-income college students, and was heavily involved with WOOLF, an orientation program at Williams that takes first-year students camping on the Appalachian Trail for a week.

I’m excited to lead for Overland because I believe it combines my passion for nature and working with children. I’ve loved participating in and leading the first-year wilderness orientation trip at Williams as it helped me create new friendships and build my appreciation of nature. My goal is to create an environment where the Overland students get a similar rewarding experience, and I cannot wait to see what the trip has in store for us.
