Our Staff

All staff members at Water Monkey go through background checks and interviews before being allowed to join the team. We take our jobs seriously here so that our families can be at ease with their kids shipping off for a week with us at the lake.

Evan Goldner - Founder/director

Evan has been working in the camp industry since 2004 and brings a lifetime of outdoors experience and education with him wherever he goes. He will talk your ear off about the benefits of summer camp, saving the environment, books, movies, or his adventures in over 30 countries spanning five continents.

Home base for Evan is in Hooksett, NH with his wife, Kristen, son, Finn, and rescue pup Tuckerman. Evan studied finance and economics while at college but his life since then has rarely taken him into the confines of an office. He dedicates his days to enjoying the outdoors, seeking new challenges, and helping others take part in this path that he has chosen.

Certifications: Wilderness First Responder, Commercial Boat Driver, Red Cross Lifeguard

RYAN HINRICHs - head coach & Assistant director

Ryan is a fun guy and super talented to boot. Besides absolutely shredding behind the boat, he is a rock climbing, slack lining, snowboarding, disc golfing, standing backflip landing, joke telling, mountain biking fiend! Ryan is a graduate of Arizona State University where he was the VP of the ASU Wake Devils. 

Ryan now works for Water Monkey year-round helping find new campers and coaches but his greatest challenge will certainly be surviving a New Hampshire winter after four years in Arizona!

Eliseo Magallon - Coach

New to the crew for 2017 is Eliseo who will be stashing away his fresh degree in Exercise Science from GCSU for one last summer of fun before entering the real world. From Lawrenceville, GA, Eliseo loves an adventure - whether road tripping, farming, scuba diving, or standing up to roaming grizzly bears. His goals this summer are to land a tantrum to blind and share his insane passion for wakeboarding with our campers.

Collin Westerman - COACH

Collin hails from Indiana where he is a sophomore at BSU.  He has been wakeboarding since he was five and gets to put his skills to use on his university's wakeboard club. Collin also loves to longboard, snowboard, and flip around on trampolines.  A self-proclaimed ‘ginger’, Collin has asked to forgo his summer salary this year in exchange for limitless sunscreen.

First year coach Sabrina is from sunny Huntington Beach, California but has been acclimating to our New England seasons as a student at UMass Amherst.

Sierra gasperoni - counselor

This will be Sierra’s sixth summer here (first as a camper and now as a counselor) so she knows the ins and outs of our program better than most! As a counselor Sierra is focused on helping give our campers the same experience that has kept her coming back for so many years. At camp Sierra can most often be found shredding the wake surf board with her signature Cali style or smuggling late night snacks out of the kitchen.
