Monique Reinsel, Camp Susque’s Treasurer, started as Year Round Staff in August 2014. Starting with her first real job at a 5/10 cent store, Monique entered the world of numbers and continued into doing accounting work for over 20 years now. Her experience in balancing Susque’s monthly bank accounts, ensuring the taxes are paid, and initially writing most of the grants shows that Monique is perfectly suited to serve Susque in this role. Her ability to assess problems well and come up with solutions makes her the perfect person to oversee Susque’s finances.

When Monique isn’t bringing us snacks at staff meetings, “porching” at Hemlock Hall in the summer mornings before staff devotions, or connecting with a summer staff member, you can find her gardening, painting a picture, or “toodling” with her family. You may even find her dreaming of going to Ireland someday with her husband, Bill.  Monique is a mom of 5 adult children and grandma of 2 grandchildren.
