Teacher Assistant - 1st Grade
Billy was born in Marion, North Carolina, but now calls Asheville home with his wife, Ginny, and Bunnies, Ollie and Piper. He went to Appalachian State University for his Bachelor Degree in Recreation Management. He has been working with youth since he was 16 years old, teaching outdoor skills at Camp Bud Schiele. Since then, he has tried on many hats. Some of his favorites were as a Ranger for the Tongass National Forest in Juneau Alaska, a shipboard naturalist for Disney Cruise Line, and most recently he has been a Program Supervisor and Director of Camp-Wide Activities at Talisman Summer Camp in Zirconia. Billy believes the house of tomorrow is built on the foundation of today. In his free time, he can most likely be found traveling, gardening, backpacking, playing video games, or learning the banjo.
