Olivia Boudwin has been working with Camp Twitch and Shout (CTAS) since 2017 as a Counselor, Cabin Leader, Unit Leader, and now Camp Director. She found out about camp when she was a student at Appalachian State University through Megan Kasper, one of Camp Twitch and Shout’s previous Camp Directors. With very limited knowledge about Tourette Syndrome, she “made an impulsive decision to apply to camp” her first year in college and fell in love with the tight knit community. Camp inspired her so much that she applied to work for Camp Twin Lakes for two full summers. She felt permanently changed for the better by camp and is grateful for the chance to give back to the loving community each summer.
Olivia has a degree from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina for Child Development: Birth-Kindergarten education along with a minor in Spanish. She works at Bethel Elementary’s NC Pre-K and Developmental Day Classroom for children ages 3-5 with diverse abilities. Her passion relates directly to working with young children and families. Her focus is on how intergenerational trauma and poverty affect young children.
Outside of camp and work, Olivia loves to read, be in the sun, and spend time at home with her two cats and partner, Ben Brown.
