Meet Our Team

Bobbie Szabo, Leisure and Lifestyle Services Manager

She spent the summers of her childhood at residential camps her mother directed, and listening to stories from the years her grandfather spent running camps. Bobbie has been a member of the Highbrook Lodge family, specifically, since 2014, when she began as a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed Cabin Counselor. She spent two summers as a staff member, two summers as a volunteer, and popped in and out for virtual activities while she was serving in the Peace Corps in Botswana as a Youth Development Officer. After all that time, she still has not lost energy and passion for the Cleveland Sight Center and HBL communities. Bobbie joined the CSC team full-time in 2020, and she is honored and thrilled to be working with the clients and campers she has known and admired for so long.

When Bobbie is not running through the halls of CSC in costume or traipsing through the woods at Highbrook covered in mud, she can be found dancing her heart out, kayaking on the Cuyahoga, thrift shopping, or planning her next travel destination.

Gabriella Drago, Leisure and Lifestyle Specialist

From receiving early intervention services, to attending Highbrook as a child, to working for two summers as a Highbrook staff member in 2017 and 2018, Gabriella's dedication to the Sight Center and Highbrook mission is undeniable. Before completing her training as a Board Certified Music Therapist, Gabriella served as the Music and Drama leader for the 2018 camp season, where she made musical memories that will last a lifetime. When Gabriella is not facilitating a drumming group or screaming camp songs at the top of her lungs, you can find her singing made up songs like a Disney princess as she goes about her day, or playing with her loyal guide dog, Freesia.

Kevin Pye, Camp Ranger

Kevin Pye on a motorcycle. As the Camp Ranger of Highbrook Lodge for the past 5 years, Kevin gets so much satisfaction out of ensuring that camp is in the best shape it can be. He loves hearing campers say that they look forward to camp all year long – so he works hard to guarantee that staff are able to provide them with the best experience possible! Over the course of his time at the Lodge, he has worked diligently to maintain and improve the 60+ acre camp year-round. He also receives the same training as all of our summer-staff members, and upholds several certifications (like CPR, AED, and First Aid, and Certified Pool Operator).

Originally from Bemus Point, New York, he's called Ohio home for the past 38 years. His hobbies include riding my motorcycle, being outdoors, and working with his hands.
