Cecilia Gigante, 24, hails from Nashville, Tennessee and is a graduate from the University of Virginia’s nursing school. Cecilia has worked with teenagers in some form or fashion for the past 5 summers. She has been a camp counselor for both a classic good ole fun summer camp and at a camp for children with special needs. She also conducted psychology research that involves group therapy with teens at a local high school in Charlottesville. Since graduation, Cecilia has studied as a graduate student at New York University, where she is pursuing a dual masters and doctoral degree in occupational therapy. After providing such a wonderful experience as a trip leader on our Big Wild trip in 2017 and both our Northern Lights and Midnight Sun trips last summer, we can’t wait to have her rejoin the Moondance family once more in South Africa!
Caroline Roddy, 23, is a recent graduate from the University of Georgia! This Bulldog hails from Englewood, Colorado. From a young age, Caroline started going on family and school trips white-water rafting, mountain biking, and skiing the nearby Rockies. This trial by fire resulted in nature becoming an integral calming force for her, a place where she feels both excited and at peace. She spent this past year finishing her Psychology major in Athens, as well as taking the CPA Exam for her upcoming job at Ernst & Young. You can now find Caroline out running, hiking, or searching out her next favorite fried chicken biscuit restaurant. Caroline is most stoked this summer to get to know each of the students on her trips, building relationships with them all and a community that will last a lifetime. Heads up South Africa, here comes Caroline Roddy!
