"Krystle Baller - Music Director
"Creativity is in my lifeblood and I am beyond elated to share my knowledge with children. Being a mother of a girl myself, and a female in a male dominated profession, I am very driven to change equality issues for young girls and women through the universal language of music. Seeing the kids build confidence in themselves is the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced and I look forward to continuing to empower females of all ages. We really can be anything we want to be!"
Chesney Klubert - Volunteer Manager
"I volunteer for Girls Rock Charlotte because I believe that the future is in empowering our girls. It is in teaching our girls how to use their voices both on- and off-stage, whether it be for music, personal interests, or for a cause that they believe in. I love being a part of Girls Rock Charlotte because it fosters an environment where I am constantly surrounded by amazing, inspiring leaders who firmly believe in themselves, our volunteers, and our campers."
Lisa Sidoran - Music Manager
"I love being a part of a movement that teaches young women how to find their voice and rock their style through music!"
Laura Staples - Production Director
"I volunteer for Girls Rock Charlotte because the organization embodies, energizes, and extends the values I most esteem- equality, community, creative productivity, and the celebration of individuality- through my dual passions: music and the mentorship of our youth. "
Brit Swider - Youth Director
"I volunteer because I want to be part of an empowering and positive environment for young girls. I want to be part of a community that lifts girls up and encourages them to use their voices! Girls Rock CLT has created a space that allows campers to open up and start figuring out who they really are - it’s an awesome thing to be a part of."
Sarah Yum - Volunteer Director
OUR ROCKIN' LEGACY & BIG THANKS
As we continue to grow and change, we want to thank some very special folks who helped to create Girls Rock Charlotte and make it what is today!
Shannon Bauerle - Mom, Muse, Magic Goddess
Little did she know that when she offered to bring cookies as the parent to our first camper ever (Hannah!) did she know that her generous offer would turn into becoming the Program and Volunteer Director that started it all!! Her passion, hard work, talent...and best laugh ever...will forever remain in the heart of Girls Rock Charlotte.
In her honor, the first Kids Camp Scholarship offered every year will be named after her. We love and thank you, Shannon! You are the Thelma to our Louise!
Hannah "Court" Case - Musician with the Biggest Heart
How do you start a rock music camp if you're not a musician? You find a goddess like Hannah, that's how! Her musical expertise and talent are as big as her warm and giving soul. She kept us rockin' and laughin' all the time! She was voted best "Band Manager Ever" by our campers and we wish all her all the best as she goes on to help even more youth in her career as a counselor!
In her honor, the first Teen Camp Scholarship offered every year will be named after her. Big hugs and best wishes to Hannah. We love and thank you so much!!
