“I have been working here for 5 years. I grew up in Scotch Plains – although I wasn’t part of the YMCA community when I was younger – and remember seeing kids in after care and thinking it looked so fun. I first started working here as a camp counselor and then moved into after care. I love knowing all the kids. I just enjoy seeing them, how excited they get. I know everyone who works here. It’s a great community. I’m an only child so I appreciate being part of a community, especially one that’s like my second family.”
