Sadie grew up in Northern VA and enjoyed spending time on the Chesapeake Bay waterskiing, kayaking, and crabbing. She attended multiple resident camps while growing up and fell in love with summer camp life. As soon as she was old enough Sadie began working at YMCA resident camps. She spent three summers as a ropes instructor at Camp Silver Beach in VA, before moving to TX to work as an assistant land program director at Camp Cullen. Sadie has spent the past three summers at SOAR, both as a field instructor and course director of the Llama Trekking program in NC and Horsepacking Adventure in WY. Outside of summertime, Sadie explored her love of math and science while at school and recently graduated with her B.S. in Neuroscience from Christopher Newport University. Sadie is incredibly excited to be returning to the Academy at SOAR team where she can bring together her passion for education and outdoor exploration.
