At EDMO™, we say that people don’t work for us, they work with us. From our field staff to our board, at the end of the day, that’s what EDMO™ is…a bunch of hard-working, open-minded folks with big hearts playfully working towards a shared vision. We recruit staff that shine with the 6 SEL skills we aim to build in kids: Responsibility, Empathy, Collaboration, Initiative, Problem Solving, and Emotion Management. Most of our EDMO™ staff come from our museum partners, top universities, specialty graduate programs, local schools, and other like-minded educational organizations. The extensive training they receive is led and informed by our experienced team of Region Managers, Camp Directors, Curriculum Writers and Curriculum Advisory Board. It takes so many people to make the magic of EDMO™…and we’re grateful for every single one of them.

This is Sam’s fifth year with EDMO, and her first year full-time as San Francisco Region Manager! She has worked with EDMO as a counselor, instructor and director at the SF-Marina site every summer since high school, and is fluent in the vibe. She recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a double major in Journalism and Communication Arts and has a passion for giving campers amazing summer memories. Summer camp is an experience she loved as a camper and giving everyone that same opportunity and memory is a goal she strives for every day. When not at camp, you can find her hiking, eating Mexican food, or enjoying the California weather.

After spending last summer as Camp Director in Corte Madera, Rachel is over the moon to be joining the year-round EDMO team, as the North Bay Region Manager. Growing up Rachel was a serial day camper turned CIT and counselor. She’s a huge fan of what camp experiences can do to enhance a child’s growth and capacity to learn. Before going back to school for her masters in advertising, she taught enrichment classes, worked at an after-school program, and taught first grade and Kindergarten.  For the last six years, Rachel has spent her days teaching and training adults on how to improve their work performance and helping brands build connections with their customers. She’s delighted to have the opportunity to live in the world of child enrichment and camp shenanigans year-round! Outside of work, Rachel likes to read, write, explore Marin, and see live music.

My favorite EDMO™ memory is...

the great search for Beaver Kevin at Camp EDMO™ Rocklin! All of my campers spontaneously came together to find Beaver Kevin (Our puppet and beloved camp mascot). The campers loved Beaver Kevin and spent their lunch time making "missing" signs in an effort to find him. It was a sweet and authentic EDMO moment that showed how much campers cared!

You can find me hiking, running, fishing, playing soccer, backpacking, camping, and throwing a tennis ball for my lovely, energetic yellow labs named Cedar and Lassen.

This is Lauren’s first summer as a director with EDMO and she is pumped for a fun and exciting summer. She graduated from UC Boulder with a degree in Biology and after falling in love with field work and research she was inspired to take an internship at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. She then came to San Francisco State University where she obtained her master’s degree in Evolutionary Biology while conducting research at the California Academy of Sciences. She has extensive experience in STEM education and is ready to bring her love of science and passion for education to camp. When not at camp, you can find Lauren out on the hiking trails, playing board games with friends, or curling up with a good book. She can’t wait to have heaps of fun this summer and make amazing memories with the campers and their families.

Joe believes in the power of games in education, and is excited to be working with EDMO to bring game-based learning to more students. In his spare time, Joe enjoys cooking, hiking, racquetball, watching movies, and (of course) playing video games.

Tanya is honored to be advising on the new EDMO™ Medical Advisory Board. Unable to sit still for long, she has had a wide variety of careers in the medical field. However, this has added to her experience and appreciation for medicine. She started out as an EMT for 3 years in Santa Barbara County. There she transitioned to 911 dispatcher for about a year, dispatching police, fire, and ambulance across the county. Her love for the northeast brought her back to her hometown in New Jersey where she studied to be a Registered Nurse and achieve her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. She has been a nurse now for about 3 years working in several different environments. At Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia specializing in hematology, immunology, and allergy. At Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin Texas specializing in critical care for post surgical, cardiac, and general pediatric patients. And now she is a school nurse at an Elementary School. Her passion for kids and the medical field are what drive her.

Trace is excited to be joining our new EDMO™ Medical Advisory Board. Always interested in medicine, Trace started out by earning his undergraduate degree from Cal Poly in Animal Science. After graduating, he moved back to San Jose, where he was born and raised, and enrolled in Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) School. He worked as an EMT for 5 years before returning to school again to become a Paramedic. Trace currently works as a Paramedic for AMR in Santa Clara County. He also has the benefit of being married to our Operations Director – what a lucky guy!

“Both of my son's instructors have been extremely poised and knowledgeable. They were excellent communicators, teachers and role models for my son. Camp EDMO's instructor hiring process has been successful. Each team member from Director to Leader-In-Training displays genuine positive energy, excitement, and enthusiasm for the kids and the camp.”
