PALS is proud to introduce the newest members of our part-time staff, Brenna O’Sullivan and Josh Fields! Brenna is joining the team as the Recruitment Associate and Josh is our Campus Ambassador Intern.
Here’s a few words from Brenna:
Dear PALS family,
I am so excited to be joining the PALS staff team! I can’t wait to meet or reconnect with many of you and I’m looking forward to being part of making PALS magic happen this year.
I joined the PALS family in 2009 for the first time as a counselor, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve made so many friends and learned so much through my connection with PALS. I’m so proud of how far we have come as an organization. I will be working on recruitment this year, helping to grow the PALS family!
I grew up in Portland, Maine, and I’ve recently moved back after living in Memphis, Tennessee for several years. I’m working at a post-secondary education program for young adults with disabilities called STRIVE U. My sister, Kelsie, who has been a PALS camper in the past, is an alumna of this program and lives in Portland, too! I love being back in Maine so I can enjoy more outdoor adventures and the snow (it’s almost here!!) I also enjoy practicing and teaching yoga, reading, attempting to bake, and spending time with my family.
I can’t wait to get started working with the rest of the staff team and with you all to make the 2017 season of PALS the best one yet!
Here are a few words from Josh:
Hi PALS Family!
I am so excited to be joining the PALS Team as the Campus Ambassador Intern! PALS has become a huge proponent of my life over the last four years.
Over the last three and a half years, I have held many different volunteer positions at PALS! Long story short, the last three years have been some of the best experiences I could have ever dreamed of having! I led the Great Wolf Lodge Adventure twice, was a Counselor at the Chesapeake Bay Adventure, Camp PALS Poconos and Camp PALS Princeton, and even got to hold the position of Director this past summer at Camp PALS Poconos.
I believe PALS helped me reach my potential as a leader and team player. Through PALS, I have made some of the best friends I’ll ever have, both campers, and counselors! With that being said, part of my goal while being in this position is to help foster leadership in PALS volunteers, the way PALS helped me develop my leadership potential. One of the beautiful aspects of PALS is its volunteers, and I know all our volunteers have the potential to make a HUGE impact in their prospective communities. I cannot wait to guide them along that path!
I look forward to serving the PALS community, and using my past experiences and creative ideas to propel PALS even further along our goals. Thank you, and I cannot wait to meet all of you!
