Hannah Russell
Executive Operations Coordinator
Supports COO and Operations Initiatives; Leads Intern Program & Summer Staff
Meet Hannah Russell! Hannah is our Executive Operations Coordinator who, along with our COO, is responsible for the management and execution of all things operations in the BigStuf office and at Camp. Hannah also leads our Intern program and Summer Staff. She is passionate about challenging and inspiring college students to move out of their comfort zones into discovery of their strengths and passions.
Hannah is certainly no stranger to BigStuf!

And most likely she’ll be eating queso while watching a Braves game. Hannah brings a ton of value, experience, and fun to our team and we couldn’t be more excited to have her!

Tiffany Andrews
Creative Director and Bigstuf Store Manager
Leads all Creative Initiatives
Tiffany was a teacher for seven years before coming to BigStuf in 2013. At first she was nervous to leave teaching, but when she realized she would be working with and impacting students on a much larger scale, she jumped on board at BigStuf. Tiff is the thoughtful genius who brings together all the creative aspects of camp, from the content of each talk, to each small group question, to each environmental and visual element designed to provide a fully immersive camp experience. She also leads the design process for all Bigstuf Store items. She loves providing students and leaders with the opportunity to take a piece of Bigstuf home with them. Outside of work, you can find Tiffany with her nose in a book or flying through the air to land her next wakeboarding trick at Terminus Wake Park — and you can be assured her husband Chase and son Hayes will be close-by cheering her on!

Meagan Yates
Registration Manager
Leads Group Registration and Logistics
A graduate of the University of North Georgia, Meagan has been serving on our registration team since 2016. This girl loves organization, planning, and even spreadsheets, making her the perfect person to help leaders navigate the process of registering and preparing for camp. Meagan loves helping leaders with pre-camp logistics so that when they arrive at camp, they are free to focus on building relationships with their students! Meagan’s been serving at high school summer camps since she was a student herself, and we’re thrilled to have her serving on staff with us at BigStuf. When she’s not emailing and organizing, you’ll find Meagan in the woods or on a mountain, likely trail running or rock climbing with her husband Adam and their dog Kuma.

If you have any questions about camp and registration, email Meagan at meagan@bigstuf.com. Or if you have an awesome corny joke, also email Meagan!

Shelby Thurman
Registration & Logistics Coordinator
Supports Group Registration and Logistics
Shelby was a part of BigStuf for 11 years before joining our staff full time this year! She has attended as a student and served on our intern and summer staff teams while in college at the University of Southern Mississippi (go Eagles)! She has now joined our registration team, and is excited to love on our leaders and build relationships with them! She’ll tell you that the leaders are the true heroes as they serve students behind the scenes, and she’s stoked to get to serve them. As a self-coined “logistical creative,” Shelby enjoys creating systems for organization and we’d say she’s absolutely fantastic at it! Shelby also loves singing and doing anything outdoors, from hiking to mountain biking. We’re so glad to have her creative brain and servant heart on our team!

Send Shelby an email at shelby@bigstuf.com if you need any help preparing your group for camp.

Chelsea Pettis
Controller
Leads Financial Department
In 2007 Chelsea was given a new client at her first accounting job: BigStuf. Little did she know in just a few short months this connection would lead to a dream job that combined her love for numbers and passion for ministry. From planning and budgeting camp expenses to picking out candy and couch covers for environments to problem-solving backstage, Chelsea does so much more than crunch numbers. She loves that there is never a dull moment in the process of maximizing every dollar and seeing details come together to create an amazing camp for students. Outside of BigStuf, you might find Chelsea cheering at an FSU football game, searching for treasures at HomeGoods, sipping on an iced mocha while watching HGTV, caring for her sweet son Ethan, or even baiting her hook on Lake Lanier with her husband Dallas.
Brittany Kennicutt
Financial Administrator
Supports Financial Department
Brittany joined the BigStuf team in 2010 working part-time in the accounting world. While her job includes making sure everyone is organized, paying bills, depositing money, and managing mounds of paper work, Brittany can’t think of a better place to do it all and we can’t think of a better person for the job! With all the hard work comes endless laughs, unforgettable memories and the ability to witness students encounter Jesus throughout the summer. When not working, Brittany enjoys her new hobby of growing all different types of flowers in her yard and spending time with her husband Jeremy and their daughter Emma James.
Blake Eason
Social Media Coordinator
What can Blake Eason do? Well, the easier question to ask is what can’t Blake do? When he isn’t busy being the creative brain behind our social media accounts, you can likely catch Blake hosting, studying (go KSU Owls!), rapping, writing music, and grabbing lunch at Finn’s, all while sipping a cup of coffee. In fact, we’re not sure if we’ve ever seen Blake do anything without a cup of coffee in hand… Jokes aside, we at BigStuf love Blake and the way he serves our students through his role as Social Media Coordinator. Blake believes social media is the language of this generation and uses it to communicate with our students in a new, fresh, and authentic way. And that’s just one of the many things we love about Blake! Blake is intentional and loving in every conversation he has, with stranger or friend, and he pours that same intentionality into every tweet, story, and post. We’re so glad to have Blake in the BigStuf fam…and we think he likes us too!

Kathryn Garren
Executive Assistant to the CEO
After attending BigStuf as a camper for five years and serving as an intern and summer staff member for three more after that, we finally got Kathryn to make the move to Atlanta and officially join our staff in 2016. And truth be told: she’s incredible! She somehow manages to keep up with all of the staff happenings and keep us all in line! When Kat’s not busy making sure things at BigStuf are organized and running smoothly, you can find her exploring all of the Mexican food the city of Atlanta has to offer, making new Spotify playlists, binge-watching Gilmore Girls, or obsessing over cute puppy videos.
Jonathan Amacher
Project Manager & Lighting Designer of BigStuf Events
Jonathan first attended BigStuf in 2004 as a student. It was the first time he experienced something of that magnitude, and so he continued to come back as a student every summer until he was eligible to be an intern. With his older sister as his predecessor, he applied and was chosen for the internship in 2011. After his internship, we just couldn’t shake him! We decided to hire him as our full time Technical Director to manage the warehouse and makes sure all of our production gear is in excellent working condition. Now Jonathan serves as the Project Manager and the Lighting Designer of BigStuf Events. In his free time, Jonathan is an all around adrenaline junkie always looking for a new adventure. He enjoys mountain biking, rock climbing, skateboarding and anything else dangerous (including bear wrestling).
Josh Putman  
Warehouse Manager & Event Tech of BigStuf Events 
A man of many hobbies, Josh, or JP as we call him around here, enjoys driving, hiking, traveling, being outdoors, cheering on the Atlanta Braves, and sleeping. Also a man of many talents, JP is pretty great at impersonations and also juggling, two skills that keep us very entertained. JP has been using his talents and skills to keep us laughing for a while now. Several years ago JP attended BigStuf as a leader with his church and told himself, “Hey, I want to be an intern.” So just like that he applied to be an intern in 2012. JP became an intern and liked it so much the first year that he came back again as an intern the following summer. (JP would like to tell you that if you are reading this and are looking for something to do for the summer, apply to be an intern.) Finally this year JP has joined our events team full time! There are many things that JP loves about working at Bigstuf, but one thing that stands out to him is getting to be a part of transforming venues into irresistible environments. Whether that’s at camp in the summer or during other events throughout the year, JP loves that the job always holds something new and exciting. JP is thankful to be able to witness students coming to camp to experience God in a new way and we’re so glad to have him along for the ride!
