Timothy D. Magill, M.S., C.T.P.

Originally from Arizona, Tim moved to Kentucky in 2012 to “take the reins” here at LAC, enticed by the unique opportunity to help LAC develop as Kentucky’s first Adventure Therapy center. He is passionate about the healing impact outdoor experiences have on trauma recovery. Having devoted 40 years to outdoor education, Tim’s background includes prior positions as a camp counselor, lifeguard, archery instructor, riflery instructor, desert survival instructor, horsemanship instructor, certified overnight horseback guide and rodeo coach. His later career found Tim serving in various administrative positions: school and camp horsemanship director, business owner, camp director, development officer, school administrator, two separate tenures as executive director, and as a member of multiple non-profit boards. He holds a master’s degree in Leisure and Environmental Resources Administration as well as numerous other professional certifications. He lives in Versailles with his wife of over 35 years. Their daughter also moved to Versailles and works in the equine veterinary industry. When not indulging his passions for travel and voracious reading, Tim can usually be found in our woods, on horseback and in the company of his two best friends: a quarter-horse named “Maui” and a cattle dog named “Rosie.”

Cathy Terry, CPA

Cathy is a certified public accountant and brings a wealth of accounting and financial experience to the LAC team. Her background is in construction and she loves telling people “I went from building homes to building lives!”  On any given day you may see her out and about on the farm as she oversees the beautiful 575 acres we have been entrusted with to enhance the quality of life in our community.

Laurel Hostetter, J.D., CFRE

Laurel is a Woodford County native who has the incredible privilege of sharing the impact of the work we do here at Life Adventure Center with donors, friends of LAC, and communities across Central Kentucky. She is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and of the J. David Rosenberg College of Law at the University of Kentucky, and while she is a licensed attorney, you can tell her all the lawyer jokes you want. Laurel previously worked in philanthropy for the University of Kentucky and for the University of Georgia Foundation. She lives in Midway (her hometown!) with her husband, three kids, and numerous pets, and you can usually find her reading, cooking, and trying to convince her family they need just one more dog.

Sean Diamond, C.T.P.

Sean is our program director, where he is thrilled to have the opportunity to develop relationships with the community, learn alongside his coworkers and implement new and exciting activities!

Originally from northern Illinois, Sean has a Bachelor’s in Recreation Administration from Eastern Illinois University and ten years of experience in a variety of day camps, after-school programs, and residential camps. Over the past three years he has been an Outdoor Education and Waterfront Director, certified in high ropes courses, team building strategies and a lifeguard instructor. He is passionate about creating an unforgettable camp experience for everyone and all things outdoors!

Sean and his wife, Courtney, were married at Little Galilee Christian Camp in 2015, where Courtney grew up and worked. They rescued their loving, labrador-mix “Mowgli” in 2017 and welcomed their sweet baby girl, Norah, to the family in November 2020! When he is not working or exploring the outdoors with his family, you can find Sean watching The Office or Parks and Rec for the seventh, tenth or 200th time!

Jeff Greenwell

Keeping nearly 1000 acres over two properties operational and beautiful is no small task, thankfully we have Jeff Greenwell on the job. Equally comfortable operating a 5-ton tractor as he is perfectly stacking hay, he’ll also grace you with endless witty remarks and wisdom free of charge.

Megan Patrick

A proud Nebraskan at heart, Megan found her way to Kentucky through an internship with Life Adventure Center in 2017.  She soon fell in love with both the people and the place.  She has worked in a few different roles here at LAC and now serves as the Assistant Program Director where she is the primary contact for our mission-driven groups and helps directly with programs whenever possible. Megan has a BA in Parks & Recreation and is working toward a Master’s in Social Work. Megan is excited to share her knowledge to support the individuals we serve at LAC.

After graduating from Woodford County High School and the University of Kentucky, Kat taught at both Simmons and Southside elementary schools.
