She spent 5 summers there before joining the full-time team in 2012. Ashleigh has been the person people come to at Walt Whitman, specializing in the camper experience, building positive culture, and staff development. Ashleigh has been involved with the American Camp Association as a Tri-State Conference Program Track Chair and is a speaker at multiple camp conferences. Her favorite role though is as mom to her son Cooper.
Ashleigh is joined at Camp Winaukee by her Husband Matt, whos love for sleepaway camp started as a 9-year-old. Matt spent many years as a camper and seasonal staff member at another camp before joining the industry full-time team in 2006 as a Staffing Director.
