Camp Laurelwood Team Is Growing

by Camp Laurelwood Staff for SNH

Jennifer Gelband has joined our team as the Director of Community Outreach and Engagement. Jennifer is originally from New Haven and worked around the country as a journalist, publicist and corporate marketing professional for years before returning to Connecticut and focusing her efforts on nonprofit work in the Greater New Haven area. She is a second-generation Camp Laurelwood alum and attended for five years. Her camp experience also includes high school and college summers teaching swimming and lifeguarding at a Jewish day camp in the area.

Taylor McLeod is our new Director of Development. Taylor has more than 10 years of experience in political campaigns with the majority of those years focused on fundraising. Originally from Charleston, SC, Taylor’s career has allowed her to live all over the country. Before joining Camp Laurelwood, she spent the last year consulting on fundraising efforts for multiple Connecticut races. She moved to the New Haven area two years ago from Columbia, MO.
