Head Music Librarian and Archivist
Belinda first began her journey at Blue Lake in 2015 as a member of summer counseling staff and since then, worked as a Unit Director for four seasons. As Music Librarian and Archivist, Belinda oversees the operation of the Kutschinski Music Library, which involves preparing all music and folders for the summer ensembles, and manages the organization’s archives, including digitization efforts. She studied Music History and Piano Pedagogy at Ohio University and she comes to Blue Lake having worked in a myriad of library settings- academic, music, archival, and public. Outside of work, you can catch her talking nonstop about baseball (specifically the Cleveland Guardians), taking mini road trips, reading/buying too many books, and not letting people forget that she is from Ohio. Belinda believes that Blue Lake is truly a place that instills joy and growth for all, from campers to staff alike, and she loves to help provide such fundamental materials as a part of that process.
