Joey Carabetta is a member of the board of directors and treasurer of the Triangle Freethought Society in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina. He also serves on the boards of Camp Quest South Carolina and the Renaissance Montessori School. One of the recent exciting endeavors Joey is involved with is working with national freethought groups (such as the American Humanist Association , American Atheists, Camp Quest, Center for Inquiry, Secular Student Alliance and many others) to create teams on the local level to raise a combined $1,000,000 for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night fundraiser.
Joey is the Vice President of Sales for a sales consulting firm representing Microsoft. He started his professional career as a computer chip designer specializing in CPUs for Mitsubishi. He holds bachelor degrees in Physics and Mathematics from Berea College and a Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from Duke University. In his spare time Joey enjoys playing with his two young daughters and restoring antique radios.
Kimberly Ellington is a freethought activist from the Raleigh, NC area. She is a management consultant and mom to a seven year old. As a member of the American Humanist Association, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and the Triangle Freethought Society, she is excited to be a part of Camp Quest and its key role in strengthening and expanding the freethought community.
Kelley Freeman is a senior at the University of South Carolina majoring in Russian language & literature. She is currently a president of the Pastafarians at USC; an affiliate of the Secular Student Alliance. For the summer of 2011, Kelley worked as the summer intern for the Secular Student Alliance (and it was AWESOME) and was a runner up for the American Atheists’ Leadership Scholarship in 2011. Kelley also serves on the board of directors for Camp Quest South Carolina and is a regular contributor for Friendly Atheist. In her free time, she crochets, hangs out with her awesome cat, and loves to do service work. She has been involved with a service sorority on campus since 2010. Hopefully after she graduates, she can upgrade to professional atheist and get fancy business cards.
Originally from the UK, Han Hills moved to the US seven years ago and lives and works in Wilmington, North Carolina. Raised in a Humanist household, he has long had a passion to spread the word on Freethinking.
Han serves as the President of the Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear, as well as on the boards of other Freethought organizations, including Camp Quest South Carolina where he is Vice-chair. He is the host of the Cape Reason podcast and recently chaired the first regional Carolinas Secular Conference. He is a class member of the Humanist Institute and works on many diverse local, regional and national projects to help build the Humanist movement. With a background in business, finance and technology, Han brings a practical goal oriented approach to everything. In what free time remains he is passionate about film, history and the written word. Han is a big fan of cheese.
Amanda McGuire is California native and a frazzled chemistry major in her senior year at Armstrong Atlantic University. She can usually be found in the lab making a mess, but has also been spotted drinking Red Bull in the library whilst pretending to study or trying to con her professors into buying her Indian food. She lives in Savannah with her boyfriend (and fellow camp counselor!) Johnny, three aloof cats, and their two ditzy dogs.
Amy Monsky has been involved in the freethought community since 2008 when she was delighted to discover there was one. A fellow member of her local humanist group turned her on to Camp Quest and she knew immediately it was something she wanted to be involved in. Since that time, Amy has served on staff at Camp Quest Ohio and Camp Quest Chesapeake. Pulling from her experience at both CQ Ohio and CQ Chesapeake, Amy started a new Camp Quest location in South Carolina where she is the Camp Director. After a successful Family Weekend Camp in the fall of 2011, Amy and the rest of her team are eagerly planning Camp Quest South Carolina’s first week-long camp in the summer of 2012.
Amy is passionate about building and strengthening a supportive community for humanist families. In addition to Camp Quest, she serves on the board of and is the President of the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry. She is also a founding leader of the Secular Humanist Families of Charleston. Amy and her husband live in Charleston, SC with their 3 children, a cat, a dog, and any snake, lizard, or tadpoles that are unfortunate enough to be found by the children.
Johnny Wallace grew up in Shreveport, LA, but currently lives in Savannah, GA with his girlfriend, Amanda, and five small, unruly mammals whose capacity to generate new and unpleasant smells has so far defied natural explanation. He studied mechanical engineering at North Carolina State University and, as a result, is barely able to function amongst normal humans. In his spare time Johnny enjoys collecting power tools and starting – but rarely finishing – various home improvement projects.
Johnny first became involved with Camp Quest South Carolina in October 2011 when he served as a camp counselor at CQSCs first Family Weekend Camp.
Geri Weaver is the Founder and Past President of Central North Carolina Atheists and Humanists. She received her Bachelor’s in Social Work and Criminal Justice in 2012 and serves as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children in Scotland County, NC. Geri serves on the Board of Directors for Camp Quest South Carolina and attended their first Family Weekend camp in October 2011. She is a military wife of 17 years, a mother of three children ages 7-24, and a staunch advocate for civil rights actively involved with several community groups. She is currently seeking a job that includes a paycheck; please contact Geri if your group would like to hire this tireless and brilliant job-seeker.
