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.

She’s also a nationally certified EMT to help keep the kiddos safe! Miranda can’t wait to continue bringing her summer camp spirit and experience with EDMO to home office. She loves science and camp!

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!

When I'm not working at Camp EDMO....

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.

Ryan has been an educator for the past five years working as a third and fourth grade public school teacher before finding the amazingness that is EDMO. After working on Camp EDMO’s School Year team last year and directing camp in Alameda for the last two summers, Ryan was given the incredible opportunity to work with Camp EDMO full time as the East Bay Region Manager, allowing him to work with youth of all ages. Ryan’s passion for makers and science education has grown since his first day with EDMO and he absolutely loves the hands-on, project based learning that EDMO brings to children. Ryan is a native of the Bay Area and holds a degree in Anthropology from UC Berkeley and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential which he received through CSU East Bay’s Teacher Education program.

 

My favorite EDMO memory is...

Getting to see all the students that I taught in our school year programs come to camp. One student even exclaimed, “Hey, you’re the guy that taught me how to make ice cream!”.

When I'm not working at EDMO...

I am reading, writing, watching sports, playing kickball or hanging out with my amazing family!

Greg comes to EDMO and the Bay Area after several years spent working as a middle school classroom teacher in conjunction with the Boston Teacher Residency at the Dearborn STEM Academy in Boston, MA. Greg’s time in Boston,  collaborating with compassionate colleagues in social justice oriented schools, helped develop his passion for promoting and creating educational spaces that provide equitable opportunity for self-determination. EDMO’s focus on youth programs with an emphasis on 21st century skills and character development is what drew him to the company as a Camp Director during the 2017 summer. He now works as the Recruiting Manager and Leader-in-Training Program Coordinator during the school year, and as the San Francisco Region Manager during the summer. When not working at EDMOm Greg also satiates his love of the classroom and academia as an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Los Medanos Community College.

My favorite EDMO memory is...

hearing the jokes after lunch everyday, in particular, those younger campers who haven't really gotten the structure of joke telling yet, but are totally nailing the spirit!

When I'm not working at EDMO...

I also teach philosophy at Los Medanos Community College and love reading, listening to records, watching movies, playing trivia, and hiking with my wife and dog Chewy.

After spending two summers as the San Carlos and San Mateo Park Camp Director, Ashley is thrilled to be joining the year-round team as the Peninsula Region Manager and Outreach Manager. Before joining the EDMO team, Ashley completed her degree at Chico State in Recreation Administration and spent her time traveling Northern California teaching children and adults of all ages about conservation and environmental awareness. During her free time, you can almost always find her outside, rain or shine! From rock climbing and hiking, to painting and dancing, she has a wide variety of interests and experiences. Ashley is very excited to be a part of EDMO, where she can combine her passion for adventure, SEL & STEAM inspired learning, and self expression.

My favorite EDMO memory is...

Introducing Kimochi's to kids and adults for the first time. They are really fun stuffed creatures that help kids and adults learn how to identify and express their feelings, leading to more positive social skills and success in many aspects of life. Super cool!

When I'm not working at Camp EDMO...

I enjoy being an active community member of San Francisco's Filipino Heritage District by celebrating the cultural contributions of the Filipino community and protecting San Francisco's cultural diversity.

Kendra has always wanted to work with children and joined Edventure More with years of experience working in various educational roles.

For the past three years, she has been our Camp EDMO Manager and is excited to take on the additional role this year of South Bay Region Manager.

My favorite EDMO memory is…

getting to see returning campers each summer! It is so wonderful when campers remember who you are. I also get to see campers during the school year and I love how excited they get about EDMO!

When I’m not working at Camp EDMO…

I love to spend my time reading, eating Sushi, volunteering at the local animal shelter, and hanging out with my Pit Bull Preston, my mutt Dakota and my cat Mr. Bar!

If you have a love for being wild and bouncing off the walls with exuberant enthusiasm, you would be best friends with Dustin. Returning this summer for his fourth year at EDMO, Dustin is more than ready to jump back into the Summer Season to put his EDMO Vibe on display. Dustin started at EDMO as a counselor at the Marina site, then moved up to a position that allowed him travel around to a couple of Bay Area locations and add a splash of awesome as an instructor, counselor, and Co-Director. Now he’s returning to his home-site, Marina as a full-fledged Director to pump up the hype (and probably take more than a couple pies to the face). Dustin got his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of San Francisco and has his sights set on returning in the Fall to begin his three-year journey to earn his Law Degree. But don’t worry, when Dustin isn’t buried in tomes of criminal procedure and the codes of evidence, things can get a bit… crazy. In many ways, Dustin is a walking paradox. He loves to sing, but has a dreadful singing voice. He never misses a chance to dance, but has no rhythm… or skill. He can memorize over 20 camp songs, but has problems remembering his own phone number. He is a man of many names: Dustin, Rainbow Dustin, the Storyteller, Pie Target No. 1, and “that one guy who told me that one joke.” Sometimes random campers walk straight up to him and say, “you’re silly,” and then walk away. Whatever name you call him by, he is ready for another awesome season of camp and is thrilled to share his with his EDMO family.

Kyrstin is thrilled to be an EDMO Camp Director this summer, after a wonderful year as as an EDMO summer camp Counselor and Camp EDMO Instructor! Kyrstin graduated from Duke University, where she studied biology, environmental science and experiential education. She then spent time as a naturalist, teaching immersive science curriculum at San Mateo County Outdoor Education. Kyrstin loves science and dreams of sparking a curiosity to explore the wonders of the world in young minds! She hopes to someday found her own experiential learning and nature immersion center. In her free time, you can find Kyrstin hiking or rock climbing (with her camera and journal in hand), playing ukulele or drinking a warm mug of coffee.

Hannah is stoked for her very first year at Camp EDMO! She was born and raised in San Diego, but for the last three years she has been living in San Francisco. She has worked in outdoor education at the San Francisco National Maritime Association on Hyde Street Pier, in classrooms teaching civic engagement and community outreach at Gateway Middle School and Creative Arts Charter School, and in an after school program at Grattan Elementary School. Hannah has a degree in International Studies from the University of San Francisco, and she hopes to get her Masters in Education and teaching credential from the University of Pacific’s Bay Area Teacher Training Institute. When she isn’t donning colorful tights/animal onesies at camp, Hannah loves to sail, travel, and pet a bunch of dogs. Hannah is excited to join everyone in an exciting, adventurous summer!

This is Natalie’s first summer at Camp EDMO and she is so excited to be joining such a rad community! Natalie has been working with students ages 5-18 in various school and camp settings as a camp counselor, an instructor, teacher, facilitator, mentor, and a friend for 6+ years. During the school year she works full time bringing educational history lessons come to life with the company California Weekly Explorer, teaching and engaging with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in local schools across the Bay Area. Natalie holds a Master’s Degree from UC Santa Cruz in Theatre Arts, as well as a BA from UC Santa Cruz in Theatre Arts with a minor in Literature. During her run at UCSC she toured bay area schools acting in 50 minute versions of a Shakespeare play with Shakes-to-Go. Natalie can’t wait to meet all of the campers of the Peninsula!

Rachel is delighted to be joining the Camp EDMO team for her first summer as Camp Director! 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. She’s over the moon to reenter the world of child enrichment and camp shenanigans! Outside of work, Rachel likes to read, write, explore Marin, and go to shows. She can’t wait to meet the awesome campers who will be joining Camp EDMO in Marin!

Megan is thrilled to be joining Camp EDMO for her seventh summer in Los Altos! Over the past six summers, Megan has had a variety of roles at camp and is excited to return for her third year as Camp Director. Megan was born on the East Coast, but has always called the Bay Area her home. She received her bachelor degree in Elementary and Special Education, and her teaching credential from Northern Arizona University. During the school year, Megan is a Special Education Teacher in San Jose where she gets to teach an amazing group of kindergarten through 5th grade students every day. While not teaching or enjoying her time at camp, Megan loves to relax by reading, shopping, doing puzzles with her family, and watching her favorite TV series. Megan is ready for another summer with the awesome campers in Los Altos.

Chris is THRILLED to be returning to Camp EDMO for his fifth summer! He has worked at our Los Altos and Palo Alto locations over the past four summers, including last summer as Palo Alto’s Camp Director. During the school year, Chris is a fifth grade teacher in Hollister, California and loves teaching math. Although a native of the Bay Area, Chris got his Bachelor’s degree from Boston University in 2016 and is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Education through the University of Southern California. He has over 7 years of experience working with children including those with learning disabilities. When not at school or camp, Chris loves running marathons, the hills of Los Gatos and spending time with his family. Chris couldn’t be more excited for another great summer full of education, new and old friends, and of course, PIES!!

Adam is excited to be returning for his second summer with Camp EDMO! Last summer he worked as a counselor and Instructor at EDMO Los Altos and loved it so much he had to come back for another summer.  During the school year, Adam works as a private tutor for families around the Bay Area and leads several After School Programs for Camp EDMO. Adam has earned a degree in Human Development with an emphasis on early childhood education. He has aspirations of becoming a math teacher in the future and really enjoys working with kids. In addition to his current pursuits, Adam has worked in classrooms as a teacher’s aide in pre-schools and middle schools in his home city of San Jose.  Adam is stoked to be back at Camp EDMO as a Camp Director in San Jose. This summer is going to be a blast!

Merre is so incredibly excited to be back in Elk Grove for her third year directing Camp EDMO fun! Merre recently graduated from California State University, Sacramento with two teaching credentials in both special and general education and is now a resource teacher at Carmichael Elementary School. In the past, Merre has worked with the Sacramento Area Camp EDMO team while also student teaching in classrooms of her own. Merre knows exactly what it means to rock that EDMO vibe and encourage campers to do the same! Merre loves having a blast with kids of all ages and works hard to see that they get the most out of their experience with Camp EDMO. When Merre isn’t teaching or at camp, she loves baking yummy treats, getting lost in a great book, finding new hikes to enjoy, or going on grand, spontaneous adventures with her Corgi named Tucker Waffles.

Melanie is so excited to be joining Camp EDMO for her third summer in San Francisco. Melanie is from Arizona where she received her undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona in Vocal Performance (Opera Singing). She has just recently graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with her Masters in Vocal Performance.
