Barbie Chapman

Office Manager

After the 2015 Girls Leadership Summer Program, Barbie moved an hour and half east to Boston, where she spent the last year as an after-school Learning Center Coordinator at that Cambridge Ridge and Latin School. She graduated from Lake Forest College in 2013 with a B.A. in American Studies and Urban Studies concentration. She absolutely loves Girls Leadership and is excited to return as the summer program Office Manager. Although she won’t be a Residential Teaching Counselor waking campers up at 6:59am or leading games before workshop every morning, Barbie will still be visible, active and über involved this summer. She’s preparing to attend seminary school for a masters in Mental Health Counseling and Urban Leadership. Her goal is to develop practical tools and life skills that will help young adults successfully transition into adulthood. In her free time, you will find Barbie traveling around the world, networking at tech events, or writing stories for her travel blog the ‘JourneylingArtist’. Barbie enjoys making people laugh with with her unique ability to impersonate: Elmo, Louis Armstrong, a brass trumpet, President Obama, Donald Duck, and many more characters and famous icons. She’s looking forward to another great summer!
