Interim Executive Director
Eden is a life-long Episcopalian, who grew up attending Episcopal camps and participating in youth retreats. She is very excited to share her gifts and leadership to serve as the Interim Director of Lake Logan. She hopes that her previous experience in the ministry of hospitality, combined with her love for Lake Logan and Camp Henry, can be a blessing to the Diocese during this time of transition.
Guest Services Manager
Jen joined the Lake Logan team as Guest Services Manager in August 2021. She was formerly the Marketing and Office Manager for a local tour and transportation company and spent close to two decades working in international freight forwarding. She has an extensive background in customer service and logistics.
Jen has lived all over the country, but primarily grew up in the Chicago area. She and her husband Bryan relocated to Canton from Denver, CO in 2016. Jen has a B.A. in Journalism from Indiana University.
Jen and Bryan love hanging out with their quirky little mountain mutt, Mojo. They can usually be found up on their mountain top abode watching fireflies and stargazing around the chiminea with family, friends, and neighbors. Other interests include camping, hiking, brewery hopping, reading, and traveling. Fun fact about Jen…she’s a New Years baby.
Please contact Jen for inquiries about reservations, day passes, and season memberships.
Frank joined our team in May 2021. He graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management. Originally from South Carolina, Frank spent many formative years attending and working at Gravatt Camp and Conference Center, where he feels his love for the camp and conference center lifestyle began. After Gravatt, Frank went on to work with children with special needs and medical diagnosis in Texas at Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children.
Camp Henry and Outdoor Programs
Jessi spent her childhood attending several camps in the Metro Atlanta area, exploring the Appalachian Mountains to the north, and traveling the country with her family on school breaks. While running cross country in high school, she attended a running camp at UNC Asheville and knew she would one day make this beautiful region her home.
Jessi attended Georgia College and State University where she studied Outdoor Education and graduated with a BS in Psychology. After graduation, Jessi moved to Mikell Camp and Conference Center in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta – home to Camp Mikell where she spent five years and held several positions, from instructor to director. From 2015 to 2020, Jessi served as program director for SOAR, a local camp and academy serving students with learning disabilities. Jessi is an open-water lifeguard instructor and wilderness first responder.
Jessi, her husband, Brice, their two daughters, and their three furry roommates Jack, Pete, and Mud enjoy spending their free time exploring WNC, whether they’re rafting, climbing, fly fishing, or hiking.
Director of Facilities, Grounds, and Environmental Stewardship
Tyler Hightower has worked at Lake Logan since 2016 but has enjoyed and cared for the property his whole life as he was born and raised five miles down the road on Inman Branch. He started as part of the dining services crew, then the Assistant Director of Facilities, and has recently stepped into the well-deserved position of Director of Facilities, Grounds, and Environmental Stewardship.
He finds immense satisfaction and a sense of purpose in contributing to the well-being of Lake Logan.
Outside of work, he serves in the North Carolina Army National Guard.
He enjoys spending time with his friends and family, watching movies, playing video games, working out, and taking any chance to improve himself.
Tyler lives on the Lake Logan property with his girlfriend, Hazel, and their loveable hound dog, Todd.

Amber Rathbone has been on our Lake Logan staff with short breaks since 2003. She started as a server when she was a young adult and worked her way up to Dining Services Director. Amber enjoys farming, gardening, canning, herbalism, and spending time with her animals, and her family.
