Welcome to Michelle's Page!
Hello Friends and Family!!!
Spin for Kids 2019 is coming up on October 20th! Last year at this time I was working at Triage Consulting Group and trying to figure out my next steps in life. I had learned about this incredible organization, joined the young adult board, rented a bike, and signed up to ride. Thanks to all of my friends and family, I raised $877 last year. Not only did I raise money for camp, I learned a TON about riding and ended up buying my own road bike!
Fast forward to May of this year when I am offered a full time job at Camp Twin Lakes as the new Project Manager for Research and Outcomes and leave my job at Triage. I made the switch from consulting to the world of non-profits, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Camp Twin Lakes fundraises to send 10,000 kids with medical challenges to camp every year. That is A LOT. When I rode this race last year, I knew that this was a special place, but I can honestly say that being on the inside has only grown my love for this organization. From the top down, every employee and volunteer works so hard to give these kids the most incredible summer camp experience, and I am so proud to now be a part of it full time!
As a fifth-grade camper at Camp Cho-Yeh in Livingston, Texas, summer camp changed my life. I went on to attend camp for 6 years and be on staff for 5 summers all the way through college. Summer camp is a unique environment that helps kids gain confidence, learn new skills, and increase in their independence. But it is more than that. It also gives kids the opportunity to make life-long friends and be mentored by incredible college students, impacting them forever.
I hope you will support me in this ride as I raise money for some awesome kiddos who deserve to have the same amazing summer camp experience that I had! Love you all.
