Sam Whitehurst was born and raised on the banks of the James River in Richmond, Virginia. While growing up, you could always find him down by the water at the local park or out on the boat with his family. However his true love for the outdoors came from exploring in the Shenandoah Valley with his YoungLife leader. Inspired by this same leader, Sam went on to lead the California trip in 2016 and knew immediately that he would pursue a position in the Moondance Office after his trip. Sam graduated from Virginia Tech where he studied Finance, and he is excited to be a member of the Logistics team as a Program Coordinator.email@example.com
Olivia Warner, 23, is a current resident of Kalaheo, HI, but grew up in Orinda, CA. She just recently graduated from Franklin and Marshall College, where she studied Biology and Anthropology. While a student at Franklin and Marshall, Olivia spent a semester studying in London and loved her experience abroad. This furthered her love for travel, which began with her participation on three Moondance trips as a student. Olivia had the time of her life in Machu Picchu, Kilimanjaro, and in Vietnam and Cambodia with us. On these trips, she experienced a great deal of growth and learned a lot from her outstanding leaders. Olivia did an amazing job providing that same type of experience for the students as a leader on our Big Wild trip last summer. She spent the rest of this past year taking classes to further her education in nursing. We are so excited to welcome her back for the summer of 2019 to lead Midnight Sun in Alaska, and then the final session of our Mountains to Sea adventure.
