Who is this lady, anyway?
When I visited my daughter Amelia at camp last Sunday, a member of the staff came up and introduced herself to me. She said, “I kept getting these emails from a Melissa at ALC, and I was like, WHO IS THIS LADY, ANYWAY???”
I thought it was such a great reminder that many of you don’t know who I am! Sue and I I thought that you might like to learn a bit about me so, here we go!
First and foremost, I am the VERY PROUD mother of two beautiful children, Amelia (8 – pictured here with me while we visited her at ALC this past Sunday), and Ben (6). We live in Portland, Maine, and have three Jack Russell Terriers, Lucky, Lucy and Bandit.
I began working with ALC almost two years ago, hired to help get the website off and running. Two years later, we continue to develop our website, but work to integrate the values and community of ALC into the 21st Century! It is my job to manage our blog, update the site, and our latest adventure into myCampMinder, providing a safe, secure way for us to share your child’s summer experience with you.
I see my role as a facilitator of all great ideas we have to tell people about camp. I know that most of you reading this already know how amazing the overnight camp experience can be for our children (or for ourselves!). We want to share this enthusiasm with EVERYONE, while continuing to create a nurturing place for us to stay connected all year long! If you have comments on how things are developing here at camp, I’d love for you to leave them here, or you can email me. Your input is so valuable to all of us!
So there you go – that is me! I hope you feel like when you get an email from me now, you’ll at least know who this lady is!!!!!
