Garrett Hensley, 23, is from Charlotte, North Carolina and graduated from Furman University in 2022 with a major in Health Science & Spanish. Garret is no stranger to adventure, having participated in Broadreach Adventures programs in high school. This sense of adventure continued into college when he got involved in an array of clubs and programs in order to fill his curiosity. In college, Garrett was the Founder of the Furman Fish and Fly Club, an officer in the University Outdoors Club, a Volunteer with Neighborhood Focus (an afterschool program for low-income families), a volunteer with the Dream Center of Greenville, South Carolina, and many more. Garrett believes that curiosity is a foundational skill in life allowing people to expand their horizons, try new activities, challenge themselves, and educate themselves on new topics, all while having fun. We are so excited for Garrett to rejoin the Moondance family after leading Hawaiian Islands in 2021 and to bring his enthusiasm for life, adventurous spirit, and curiosity to his students this summer!
Taylor Byers, 22, is from Atlanta, GA, and recently graduated from Georgia College and State University where she studied Business Administration and Management. One extracurricular activity she is involved in is her role as the Executive Director of Fundraising for the Georgia College Miracle, raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and raising awareness for children with chronic illness. She has tremendous leadership experience as the former president of her sorority and a past counselor at Camp High Harbor. Taylor began her Moondance journey in 2018 as a student on our Kilimanjaro trip and we are thrilled to welcome her back for her 3rd year as a trip leader. She led our California trip in 2021 and our Ecuador + Galapagos trip in 2022 and we are so excited to have Taylor’s leadership skills, compassion, and heart back on the Italian Dolomites this year!
