Staff Spotlight - Mandy Sullivan

Can't wait to get back to camp again! My name is Mandy and I will be at camp for my 15th summer. This year I will also have my son, Bryce, at camp for his first summer! At camp I am the waterfront director and chief life jacket hanger-upper (I am hoping the campers will work me out of this job).  You will be finding me at almost all of the waterfront activities; however, I am not a very good fishing instructor! I leave the fishing to my husband Scott. When I am not at camp I am a school speech pathologist for Pre -K thru 12th grade in Markesan, WI. See you all soon and hope you have been swimming!
