JohannaJohanna Meeker – Nurse

This will be Johanna’s third summer as Camp Nurse at RRSC where first aid, medication administration and health awareness really fills her day. Johanna raised her family in Pohatcong Township where she first met Simeon Pecchia substituting as the school nurse. After nine years of working as a substitute school nurse, including summer programs, she took a full time position in a Special Education classroom. This allowed for her summers to be free so she could join the Riegel Ridge team. Working and playing outdoors are very important to Johanna. Hiking, camping, paddling and biking fill her free time. The campers have helped by adding wonderful memories and excited eyes to her outdoor experiences. She looks forward to seeing campers grow through their camp weeks and from year to year nurtured by the Riegel Ridge community.
