Staff Spotlight – Mandy Sullivan

Hi, my name is Mandy Sullivan and my wonderful husband is sending me to camp for my 13th summer at North Star Camp. During the winter I love to cross country ski and visit Hayward often to ski on the Birkie trail. I have completed 13 American Birkebeiner 50K races…all because I saw a race bib in Leb’s office when I first started working at NSC. 

During summer I love to be on the water doing most anything but especially swimming and water skiing. I also like to run and bike.  I will be the waterfront director. My favorite days at camp are the first day of each session. I get to meet ever single camper! I have ordered warm water for the swim test (not sure if Andy will pay the heat bill for that??) In the off season I am pre-k thru 12th grade speech therapist for a small school in southeastern Wisconsin.
