My name is Mary Beth, and I'm from North Carolina. I came to Durango in May of 2014 to work as a counselor at CBX during the summer and as a COLS staff in the fall. The time God has blessed me with at Cross Bar has allowed me to not only grow personally but also to watch kids of all ages grow and discover God's goodness. I am excited to watch what God does as I continue to work at CBX.
