Courtney Aldrich, RA

Hello! My name is Courtney and I am the RA for third floor of the Hillside Suites North. I am excited to join the Res Life team for the 2016-2017 year and to make new friends! My hometown is Daytona Beach, Florida, but I have recently moved to Scio, New York. I graduated from Massanutten Military Academy in 2015 and came to JCC to be a global studies major. Upon graduating from JCC I plan on transferring to Virginia Military Institute to pursue a bachelor's in modern languages and cultures with a concentration in Chinese and minor in Arabic, with the hopes of being a linguistic officer in the Marine Corps. On campus I have served as vice president on the Student Senate and have attended multiple conferences which have strengthened my skills in areas such as leadership, problem-solving, and communication. This summer I was a camp counselor and rifle instructor at Camp Runoia, and got to experience firsthand being a mentor and a friend to all the campers who came to camp. I am a huge fan of art and all things nerdy, including but not limited to Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and much more! I am always excited to learn new things and meet new people! It believe the RA experience will be rewarding and will teach me a lot. I really hope to make new friends and be an effective RA this year!

Greetings, everyone! My name is Rachel Epp and I’m from Corning, NY. I’m honored to be one of your RAs. This is my second year at JCC, and I am a sophomore in the occupational therapy assistant program. I’m a Christian, and I enjoy reading, writing, drawing, painting, playing Frisbee, singing, listening to music, knitting, and crocheting. I like pretty much anything that has to do with Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, or Doctor Who. I love laughing and spending time with friends and family. It is my hope that I can help you have the best possible experience here at JCC! My door will always be open if you have a question, need someone to talk to, or just need somewhere quiet for studying. ;)

Matthew Klatt, RA

Hello everyone, my name is Matthew Klatt. I was born and raised in South Florida and I will be an RA in the Hillside Suites North building. This is my second year at JCC. I’m majoring in criminal justice and planning on transferring to another college when I finish JCC so I can get a bachelor’s in criminal justice. The reason why I want to be an RA is to help as much people as I can. I remember what it was like to be placed in a new environment surrounded by people you don’t know. It was great to know that I had someone to turn to that helped me out and now I’m looking to return the gratitude by helping out my residents with any situation that might arise. I wish only the best for my residents and hope they flourish with success and academic achievement.
