Spain Chaperones:

Deb Kaitz

I have been involved with Girl Scouting for over 20 years. 9 as a girl member and over 11 as an adult member. I have two grown children ages 21 and 19. I have been a Registered Nurse since the age of 19. I love to travel and have travelled extensively. With my Girl Scout troop I have been to NYC, Minnesota, the Mexcian Riveria and Hawaii. With my family I travel frequently to Cancun, the Dominican Republic and most recently did a 7 day cruise of the Mediterranean that departed from Barcelona Spain. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, biking, competitive tap dancing, skiing and shopping.

Debbie King, GSGWM Troop Resources Manager

Debb is a graduate of Plymouth State College with a degree in Elementary Education.  She worked in public and private schools for over 20 years with a strong background in supporting special needs students.  Debb started as a troop leader over 15 years ago and has been a leader at every age level for all 3 of her daughters.  She has also been director of Camp Whispering Pines, an Adult Learning Facilitator, Community Team member and delegate at the council and national levels. She has traveled with girls both domestically and internationally through the troop and camp pathways.  She took on the role of staff member in 2009 because she wanted other adults to have as much fun in Girl Scouting as she has had.  Debb loves to cook, camp, travel, ride her motorcycle and spend time with her husband and 3 grandchildren (one of which is a Girl Scout).  

Dublin, London, Paris – Summer 2016

Three European capitals combine to provide countless incredible memories for your troop—from the hospitality of the Irish, to the sophistication of the English, to the romance of Parisians. Find out why Dublin has so many colorful doors, see where Shakespeare drew his early inspiration, and put your camera’s memory to the test with photos of the Eiffel Tower! Click the link below for more details.

Dublin, London, Paris Chaperones:

Sheila Morris

Sheila Morris hails from Concord, NH and has been a Girl Scout for 24 years, 15 as a leader.  She has served over 200 girls during her leadership years and is currently a leader in three troops. She is the Community Cookie Chair and the Volunteer Support Coordinator. She has said that "Scouts is my full time unpaid job where I get paid with girls' smiles, and get to see  girls learning to become leaders, work in a group to make decisions, and experiencing new things!" She has three daughters (20, 18, & 16) all of whom are involved in scouting. She has traveled regularly with her troops and has been able to try things, learn, explore and see places because of Girl Scouts.  In fact, she just went zip lining through the treetops in Honduras and snorkeling in Cozumel with her Ambassador troop while on their cruise. Sheila is outgoing and happy! She loves to read, go to the beach, and play with her three dogs.

Jackie Bruleigh, GSGWM Coordinator of Marketing, Social Media and Website

Jackie has been a Girl Scout locally for 18 years, serving as a girl member on the board of directors, and working as a Farnsworth camp counselor for 3 years before joining GSGWM full time as the New Media Coordinator. She holds a BA in History of Science, History of Medicine and a MPH in Social and Behavioral Science (with a focus on health in the media) from Yale University. This is Jackie’s first job after graduation, and she’s thrilled to be working to make Girl Scouting more accessible through the internet. Jackie lives in Boston, where she writes and performs comedy and tries (and fails) to keep her tea and book collections in check.
