Ekko is so stoked to be joining EDMO as a Region Manager. For the past three years, Ekko taught 7th grade English and Language Arts and was a Middle School Special Education teacher in Houston, TX. Ekko has also been a camp counselor in Alton Bay, New Hampshire for an overnight camp called Camp Deer Run where she discovered her love for summer camp culture. She is passionate about creating and sustaining opportunities for youth to cultivate their minds and building their character! Ekko graduated from Biola University in 2015 where she received her Bachelor's of Arts in Communication Studies and minor in Biblical Studies. She also graduated with her Masters in Education and Curriculum with an emphasis in Early Childhood (EC) Education through 6th grade and Special Education EC-12th grade from Houston Baptist University in 2018. When Ekko is not working, she loves to hike, do just about anything outdoors, play with her dog Zailey, work on her Business Coach and Resume Editing Business, cook and workout! She is super excited to bring her love and joy for camp to EDMO and connect Austin with all that EDMO has to offer!
