Program Director – Meg Gallagher
I have worked at Genesee Valley since the summer of 2014. This past January, I stepped into a management role as the Program Director. I couldn’t be more honored to be part of this organization and see the difference we make each and every day. I have had a passion and respect for the outdoors and experiential education for many years now and am so excited to embrace this as my career. I believe in my ability to help others reach their potential and love that I get to provide that in our programs on a daily basis.
Outside of work I enjoy activities such as rock climbing, hiking, making pottery, traveling, photography, and gardening.

Challenge Course Manager – Scott Gray
This is my second year working as the Challenge Course Manager here at Genesee Valley. My favorite part of work is making a difference in the lives of young people. I really believe in our Mission to help people grow. Outdoor Education played a positive role in my childhood and I am honoured to be a career professional in the field. Outside of working at The Valley, I enjoy hiking, American history, visiting museums, and I am also a HUGE Disney nerd!

I am the Business Manager for Genesee Valley. I have been working here since 1989, when I first started as a camp counselor. Over the years I have watched Genesee Valley flourish into the amazing program it is today. My favorite part is the joyful sounds of Genesee Valley. Outside of working at The Valley, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, enjoying the sun, and rock climbing.
