Kelly Nelson, 23, comes to us from Matthews, VA, and recently graduated from Longwood University with a degree in Environmental Science and Earth Science. She has a thirst for adventure, which grew during her time spent studying abroad in Valencia, Spain in 2016. Having grown up on the water, Kelly has always enjoyed an endless love for the outdoors, which led her to working as a counselor at Camp Kieve-Wavus in Nobleboro, Maine for three consecutive summers. Kelly loved every second of her summers spent as a counselor at Kieve and excelled in providing a warm and exciting environment for the campers that she worked with. After Kelly’s amazing experience leading our Pacific Northwest trip last summer, Kelley worked as a teacher in Denver where she furthered her love for working with teens. We are so excited to have her return as a leader once again for the summer of 2019 in South Africa!
Rebecca Fisher, 24, comes to us originally from New Orleans, Louisiana but has called Brunswick, Maine her home the last few years as a student at Bowdoin College where she graduated in 2017! As a student, she earned a degree in Neuroscience and Gender Studies. Rebecca is no stranger to Moondance, having been a 3x alum. She was a student on our Hawaiian Islands, Chamonix, and Kilimanjaro programs, which she loves dearly. During her college years, Rebecca spent the majority of her time in the lab working on cancer research. Outside of the lab, she could be found reading, practicing yoga, and spending time with her friends in the outdoors! Rebecca has spent her last few summers taking classes at Tulane, working in Brunswick, and conducting research on central nervous systems in insects. Rebecca understands the importance of positivity for teenagers and that was one of her driving forces in wanting to come back and lead for Moondance. She had a great experience leading our Fiji and Thailand service trips in 2017 and 2018. We cannot wait to have her back as a leader this summer for the 3rd session of our South Africa trip!
