Liz Joy Moore
Director of Leadership Development, Kiniya (2018)
Liz joins the Kiniya year-round team excited for the good work of empowering our young women as they grow into resilient, aware, and thoughtful individuals. Extensive travel and a perpetual student, Liz understands the power of inviting curiosity into our experiences. Liz’s education in anthropology and cultural geography, training in experiential education and body-based therapies, and love for culture and our natural world, all give her a unique approach to the art of human growth and development. She is ready to bring her joys, expertise, and ideas to the Kiniya community.
Liz was first introduced to camp in 2014 to train the Dudley and Kiniya summer challenge course facilitators. Since 2018 she has been involved more extensively, training leaders and staff in specific leadership skills during pre-season. She has also worked alongside the Dudley Hike Hut team to support the rock climbing, ropes, and facilitation program. Liz says it was during this time she saw first-hand the incredible love and devotion of the folks who work at Dudley and Kiniya. “It’s truly remarkable how much good energy is devoted to the growth of the youth who are lucky enough to walk through camp doors,” she says.
Liz is an avid rock climber, paddleboarder, hiker, and gardener. She loves the change of seasons, cloud formations, and science fiction and psychology books and podcasts. Having lived and worked all along the east coast and abroad, Liz now splits her time between Baltimore and Burlington. The former is where she thrives as ‘the outdoor-adventure-aunt’ to three nieces and a nephew she can’t wait to welcome into our camp community.
