Olivia Schmalz grew up in the Mad River Valley, VT. She is currently attending Ithaca College pursuing a degree in Speech Pathology and hopes to someday work in a school setting. In her free time, she enjoys skiing and snowboarding, reading, and in quarantine, she’s enjoyed learning how to crochet. She has always enjoyed canoeing and kayaking more casually, but really only found her passion for it during her last few years as a camper at Brown Ledge. This will be Olivia’s 6th summer at Brown Ledge and after working in the canoeing and kayaking department as a junior counselor, she’s looking forward to teaching campers again soon.
