Although Jennifer spent much of her professional career in advertising, marketing and promotions for the insurance and financial industries, summer camp has been part of her life since the age of 4, first as a camper and later as a counselor. When her own son & daughter attended day camp, she traded in her desk for a pool and served as a swim instructor. After learning about Sunrise through a friend, Jennifer was hired in the spring of 2017 to support both the Director and Assistant Director in camp and year-round programs. The newly created position of Operations Manager perfectly combined her eye for detail with her passion for children. In March of 2020, she took on the role of Assistant Camp Director. In this role she will continue to manage staffing and day-to-day operations while also playing a vital role in programming. Jennifer graduated from Syracuse University with a BA in Advertising Communications and subsequently from Boston University with an MBA in Marketing.

Michelle has always had camp in her blood. Her father was a camp director while she was young; she worked in a local camp in her teens; and as a mom worked at the camp where her two sons attended. Michelle spent the majority of her professional career in the marketing/advertising industry and started her own consulting business promoting small businesses. When the opportunity arose to return to her first love of camp, she jumped at it. In her current role, Michelle is able to use the skills she developed throughout her career building relationships with local industry and the community to spread the magic of Sunrise and get them involved in a cause she is passionate about.
