If you have called the Asbury Hills Office over the last year and a half, you got the pleasure of speaking with Susan Rouse, Asbury Hills Site Director David Rouse’s wife. Susan was gracious and willing to fill the position of Reservation Specialist until our God sent us the perfect applicant.
We are happy to announce that the new voice on the phone will be Emily Eskridge.
Emily comes to us from Taylors, South Carolina where she lives with her husband, Franklin. Emily was born and raised in Greer, South Carolina and has a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Christian Studies and Communications from North Greenville University. If Emily isn’t at camp, you’ll most likely find her antiquing or writing songs to play her guitar and sing to.
Emily is no stranger to the camp world!
She grew up attending Camp Marietta and Camp La Vida as a camper. In the summer of 2013, she was a counselor for Merriwood Christian Camp in Clemmons, North Carolina.
We asked Emily, “What drew you to Asbury Hills?”
“As a camper and as a counselor, I experienced how special and unique camp ministry is. My experience as a counselor marked so much growth in my life and the opportunity to see firsthand the growth in others. Because of that, I realized the importance of camp ministry–maybe today more than ever, when society is constantly plugged in and there are an array of distractions. The Lord brought this back to my mind as I saw the posting of the position at Asbury Hills and I knew I needed to apply.“
We cannot thank Susan enough for being able to be our interim Reservation Specialist and we are so thrilled to have Emily on board!
“Working for a camp full-time always sounded too good to be true for me so I am THRILLED to be a part of the Asbury Hills family!” –Emily Eskridge
