Kacie started her career at MedCamps while she was still attending school at Bastrop High School where she graduated in 2011. At 17 years old, Kacie admits that she had no idea what kind of impact camp would have on her life. She worked as a camp counselor for four (4) summers. During those years, Kacie also helped some local families by watching their kids who are living with special needs on the weekends and after school. MedCamps had changed her entire way of life and made her look at things in a new light.
In May 2014, Kacie graduated from Louisiana Tech University with her Associates Degree in General Studies with a concentration in Humanities. She worked one semester as a para-professional at Choudrant High School in the Special Education classroom with some amazing kids. Currently, Kacie serves MedCamps as the Events and Volunteer Coordinator. She is set to graduate from University of Louisiana-Monroe in May 2016 with her Bachelors in General Studies with a concentration in Social Science, a minor in History, and a minor in Psychology. Upon graduation, Kacie is set to become Camp Director for the Summer 2016.
Kacie often times tells people that she started working at camp when she was in high school because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of children, but she had no idea how much of a difference those same amazing kids would make in her life.
