Here’s a little more from Emesha:

“Hello PALS!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to join the PALS family as your Marketing Coordinator! I look forward to meeting all of our campers, counselors, and families and sharing in fun-filled memories.

I was born and raised in New Jersey and graduated from Monmouth University with a degree in Business Management. Since graduating, I have had the opportunity to work in nonprofits in various roles. Recently, I served in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica as a Community Economic Development Advisor. Assigned to develop and implement a number of projects, I initiated and managed environmental projects, workshops and trainings for social service groups, renewable energy systems, business consultations, and worked with a special needs organization. This past year I worked in the RARE AmeriCorps Program developing a Main Street Program on the Oregon Coast. We developed a successful organization that revitalized the community using a number of campaigns and strategies that continue to grow!

I love the outdoors and am always down for an adventure! I enjoy playing on the beach with my dog, hiking and camping, starting impromptu dance parties, snowboarding, spending time with family, and volunteering! I am excited to dive in and experience PALS up-front, soak up the MAGIC, and make new friends. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to devote my professional experience to help strengthen and expand the reach of such an amazing organization. Thank you for the warm welcome and I can’t wait to meet you all in person!

PALS Love,
