Leadership Team

Eden Lewis
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.

Jen Brauer

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.

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.

Jessi is an open-water lifeguard instructor and wilderness first responder.
