Maxine Holtzman, Business and Retreat Manager
Maxine Holtzman joins Camp Daisy and Harry Stein as the Business and Retreat Manager, bringing over 30 years of business and administrative background with her, as well as 20+ years in special event planning and coordination, executive administration, restaurant management, and camp staffing.
Maxine is looking forward to a ‘new’ style of summer camp here in the Southwest (sunny!), having just relocated from the Pacific Northwest (rainy!), where she lived for 28 years.
