Hi, my name is Bria. I am currently a sophomore at Marist College and I am majoring in Psychology and Special Education. During the school year, I volunteer at a local soup kitchen and elementary school. When I am not in class I enjoy being outdoors with friends. My favorite sports are basketball and lacrosse. I enjoy traveling, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. I’ve worked with children since my senior year in high school and I hope to be an elementary school teacher when I graduate college.
Hi my name is Isabel Schuckman! I am 19 years old and have lived in Mountain Lakes with my parents and two brothers my entire life. I am currently a student at Washington University in Saint Louis and I am studying business. When not studying, I enjoy exploring the city with my friends, whether trying out new restaurants or running through the famous Forest Park. During the summer you can find me at the beach, walking my dog Ollie around town, or curled up with a good book. I love working with kids and am super excited to be a counselor this summer!!
I am a recent graduate of Goucher College in Towson, Maryland where I studied Communications and Media Studies. My hobbies include going for hikes in the woods and watching movies. I have worked at other summer camps in the past and am very excited for my first summer at the Lakeland Hills YMCA.

Hi everyone! My name is Carmela Pagliarulo and I attended Rowan University. My major is Health and Physical Education. I am a big sports fanatic. I love watching sports, playing sports, and coaching sports. I played soccer, basketball, and spring track. I am a Physical Education teacher for Apple Montessori School.

I can’t wait to bring Fun and Fitness to a whole new level here at camp and make it the best summer yet!
Specialist - Togetherhood
Hi! My name is Marissa and I am the Togetherhood Specialist at the Y. I graduated from Verona High School and then graduated from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with family/friends, and going to the beach. I love all types of music- but 3 bands I will never get sick of are: The Beatles, Mumford & Sons, and The Lumineers. This is my second summer working at the YMCA with such amazing staff and campers!
Specialist - Challenge
My name is Jessica Prentice. I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Education. Since then I have worked in several school districts in the Morris and Sussex county area for about 10 years. I am currently working as a 6th grade English teacher. Outside of school, I love arts and crafts, football, and gardening. I look forward to the warm weather, so I can spend all my time outside with my family and friends. As a child, I attended several summer camps for soccer and girl scouts which were always the highlight of my summer vacation. I look forward to making my second summer at the YMCA awesome for everybody!
