Katie, a native of Frederick, Maryland, recently graduated from Messiah College with a degree in Human Development and Family Science. She has a huge passion for sharing her love of the outdoors with others and especially enjoys whitewater kayaking and snowboarding. For the past three summers she has worked at Ligonier Camp and Conference Center where she grew in her love for youth ministry and began searching for ways to make it a career path. Thrilled to have the opportunity to build relationships with the youth in Ligonier, she is excited to see all that God will teach her through this internship and where it will lead her in the future.
Hailey is a recent graduate of Saint Vincent College, where she earned her degree in Psychology and minored in Child Development. After graduation, Hailey returned home to Ligonier Valley and was drawn to organizations that would give back to the community that raised her. Hailey is an active youth leader in her local church, and through that experience was drawn to applying to the VYN intern position. Through this opportunity, she hopes to share her love of Jesus, reading, music, art, and being physically active.
