Susan is a born and bred Texan and Baylor University alumni whose long-time dream job has been to work and serve at a Christian camp. Prior to joining Pine Cove, Susan was a new business development and marketing executive in corporate America for 17 years. Susan may appear to be "all business" but don't let that fool you. She is still a kid at heart. As her camp name indicates, her first job, at 16 years-old, was delivering singing telegrams and even now during her time off, you may catch her playing "Just Dance" on the Wii with her two teenage daughters. Susan is married to David and they reside in Tyler, Texas.
Jeremiah grew up in Springfield, Missouri, but came to Texas as fast as he could. He married a Texas girl, they met working at camp together, and now have three kids. A die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan, Jeremiah loves all things baseball-related. He first started at Pine Cove in February 2014 serving as Director of Marketing. Prior to joining Pine Cove he served as Dean of Advancement for a community college overseeing marketing, development, and any special projects they could throw his way. Why the camp name "Claw"? His son once got trapped in a claw machine game at Pizza Hut! Jeremiah and his wife Kasey reside in Tyler, Texas.
Lisa is proud to be a native Texan. A die-hard Baylor Bear and Dallas Cowboys fan, she loves football season. Her first introduction to Pine Cove was through Family Camp in 2003 with her husband and three kids. Since then, her family has branched out to attend day camp, overnight camp, parent/child conferences and more. One of her greatest joys has been serving as a conference speaker. In the fall of 2014, Lisa transitioned from Pine Cove Board Member to Pine Cove staff. Her experience in non-profit marketing and development serves her well as she represents Pine Cove in Houston.
Laura is a native East Texan who loves working in the Christian camping ministry, as she previously worked at Sky Ranch before coming to Pine Cove almost four years ago. Since her college days at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, Laura has used her talent as an accomplished pianist and vocalist to serve many east Texas churches. She also invests her time into developing young musicians and leading the children’s ministry at her home church. A few of her favorite things include antiquing adventures with her mom, long talk-walks with her dad, treasure hunting with her two boys, and the comedy that has come throughout the past 20 years of marriage with her best friend, Clayton!
Jodi was born and raised in Starkville, Mississippi, home to the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and played competitive tennis at the college level for two years. She received her Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology from Mississippi State and has been on the go ever since! Jodi's love of travel has taken her to Israel, Italy, Mexico, Peru and 23 of the 50 States. She served three summers at Pine Cove before joining our full-time staff. It is Jodi's hope and desire "to pour into others: serving, supporting, and loving them in the same way that the Lord has used Pine Cove to serve, support, and love me.”
