2016 Waterskiing and Wakeboarding Staff

Andreas Landin returns for a seventh summer on the ski dock.  Andreas is currently in his last year as a law student at Uppsala University in his native Sweden.  Growing up in a “summer town” that comes alive with water sport enthusiasts encouraged his love of waterskiing, wakeboarding and boating.   Sports are an important part of Andreas’s life and he enjoys tennis and running as well as skiing and snowboarding in the Alps.  Brown Ledge also allows Andreas to indulge two other passions; teaching and meeting people from around the world.

Christy Harris is from Plymouth, Vermont and this will be her ninth year at Brown Ledge, her third on the senior staff in waterskiing.   Christy grew up as a downhill skier and she became passionate about waterskiing at Brown Ledge.  Christy is entering her senior year at the University of Vermont where she studies Spanish and English literature.  Christy worked in a vineyard in the Spanish Pyrenees and will study in Salamanca, Spain in the fall.  Christy volunteers in an ESL (English as a second language) elementary classroom in Burlington.

Ashley Dubois returns to Brown Ledge after a skipped summer.  Her home base is Milton, Vermont and she is entering her third year at the University of Vermont.  Ashley is majoring in social work and she will be starting a year-long internship in the fall.  Ashley was a camper for two summers and she graduated from the JC program in 2012.  Ashley is at home on the waterfront; she taught canoeing and kayaking in 2014 and she has been waterskiing on Lake Champlain since the age of eight.  Ashley is excited to spend her seventh BLC summer in the waterskiing department.

Kate Pastore also learned to ski on Lake Champlain before coming to Brown Ledge though, unlike Ashley, Kate’s point of contact was the New York side of the lake.  Kate may have first learned to get up on skis before her days at camp but she developed a passion for the sport as a camper and during her two summers as a waterskiing JC. Kate returned as a counselor on the ski staff last summer.  She has just completed her sophomore year at the University of Vermont where she studies psychology and archeological anthropology.
