Meet the Staff

DD Gass – J Camp School-Age Director

I am excited for another summer of J Camp! I have directed camps for over 35 years, the last three here at J Camp. As a child I loved going to day and overnight camp. I worked as a Camp counselor in college, was a Middle School teacher for several years and have been working in Youth Development and with Camps for most of my career. E-mail DD >

Machaela Whelan - CDC Camp Director

We are ready for another exciting J Camp in the Child Development Center! I love seeing the kids splashing away at the pool and singing along with our special performers each week. We keep the kids active and busy throughout the entire summer! As Director, I am here for any parent questions or concerns, and am available to talk about enrollment options. I can’t wait to meet you for CDC Camp 2017! E-mail Machaela >

Rachel Zoller - CDC Camp Assistant Director

I am pumped for another summer at the CDC!  This year, I will coordinate guest performances and special camp-wide activities for our youngest campers.  I began my career at the JCC in New Orleans as Camp Director, so this time of year -- filled with joyful cheers and swimming – holds a very special place in my heart. E-mail Rachel >

Gayle Levin – J Associate Executive Director

I am responsible for overseeing Camp, After School Programs, Child Development Center, and several other J departments. As a child I attended Fun Time and Barney Goodman Camp at the JCC at the Holmes location. My two children attended CDC Camp, School Age Camps and worked as LIT’s. My youngest son Blaine has been a Counselor at Sports Camp for several years! E-mail Gayle >

Support Staff

Lisa Beaman – Financial Assistance

I handle the Financial Assistance applications for Camp and make sure the necessary paperwork is filled out. I also go before the committee and advocate for the families. My son has been attending CDC Camp for 3 years now and he just loves it!  He is a busy boy and enjoys all the swimming and fun adventures! It puts my mind at ease while I am at work knowing he is in good hands and having a blast at Camp! E-mail Lisa >

Lisa Holland-Hoffman - CDC Office Manager

I have been the Office Manager for the CDC since 2009 and have watched many children (including my own) enjoy their first camp experience with the CDC and move on to school age programming and camp. I am happy to help with full year enrollment and billing as well as any documentation you may need for dependent care spending accounts or tax information. Many of our current children who enroll for camp never want to leave the CDC. Please come see us if you are interested in continuing care on a regular basis! E-mail Lisa >

Rachel Roozrokh - CDC Curriculum Specialist

I create fun-filled educational activities as a part of our core curriculum for the preschool J Camp. As a child, I absolutely loved attending Barney Goodman Summer Camp! My two boys have gone through the CDC Camp program, participated in sports camp, learned valuable lessons from the LIT program and have been camp counselors for the last several years. J Camp is a wonderful social experience that provides a lifetime of friendships and memories! E-mail Rachel >

Kelly Somberg – Administrative Assistant J Camp

This is my 6th summer working year-round with J Camp.  My kids attended camp at The J and also worked as camp counselors for a few summers.  I love talking to parents about J Camp and I am available to help families with enrollment and answer questions about camp. E-mail Kelly >

Krisandra Spell – Camp Billing and Payments

I set up billing and installments for Camp parents and also help with enrollment. My daughter loved her CDC Camp experience and wears her Camp shirt often. We are both looking forward to J Camp 2016. E-mail Krisandra >
