Doe (Suzanne McNellis (Walker))
Born in Nevada and traveled across the states, Doe finally settled in California as of 2015. She loves to travel and find new experiences. Landing in Oroville by the time she reached 6th grade, she was able to see the magic of Shady Creek first hand! Doe had the most magical time as a student and knew from the great experience she was given she would come back as a cabin leader and dedicate herself to becoming a Naturalist. Because of this, in her free time with kids and the outdoors she became a naturalist with the goal of sharing the enjoyment with others. In her free time, Doe is a person of many talents and loves to spend time with family and friends in all sort of ways. She is often seen camping, dancing, singing, playing drums and even going to church to participate and lead in worship! Doe can’t wait to spread the enjoyment of nature and life with others, along with all the fun things she gets to learn along the way.
