Chloe Gobel

Chloe grew up in Greensboro, NC and moved to the Asheville area six years ago. She has an Associate’s in Fine Arts from AB Tech. After AB Tech, she attended UNCA where she recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and a minor in Arts. At UNCA she completed an Ethnographic Thesis and Visual Ethnography entitled “Lessons From Older Brother” during her senior year. In the art department at Odyssey, she combines her Visual Arts, Anthropological, and Liberal Arts background to provide a unique array of lessons for her art students. The theme that she has focused on this semester in the art department is “Justice Needs Community.” Chloe utilizes an empathetic approach when working with students. She believes that using kindness, understanding, and freedom of self-expression in the classroom is imperative for artistic and inner growth. Chloe plans to acquire an MSW from WCU to bring her closer to her goal of working with children, art, and mental health. She is excited to be a part of Odyssey and has expressed her gratitude for the opportunity. 

Academia aside, Chloe spends her free time petting her four cats, exploring photography, painting, singing, the outdoors, the culinary arts, and friendly conversations with loved ones. She feels the most free and grateful when she is in the midst of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

She grew up in Philly and went to undergrad at Brown University in Providence where she thought she’d remain a Northeasterner.

Her favorite place in the world is any camp, and she has worked at many youth and adult camps all the way from the lakes of New Hampshire to the deserts of Texas to the Redwoods of California.
