Refreshing Mountain Bio for Angie Harnish

Hi everyone! My name is Angie and I work as the Café Manager at Refreshing Mountain! However, I have worn a lot of hats over the past couple years. I started out in the Activities department in the fall of 2018 and transitioned to the café the following spring to help the previous manager keep things running. 😊 By the fall of 2019 I had transitioned to the Café Manager, met the love of my life, and since then married Refreshing Mountain’s Trash Man, Jeremy Harnish. 😉

On a normal summer day, you will find me in the café making espresso for guests, putting a pizza in the microwave, or dumping a milkshake into a cup (sometimes I do all three at the same time!). The other ¾ of the year you might find me doing a trash run with Jeremy, vacuuming a meeting room, making food in the dining hall, restocking the activities store, or taking a hike on the trail with some of my homeschool students. 😊

When I am not working at Refreshing Mountain, I teach at a Co-op that my mom started in 2020 pursuing a 20+ year old dream she had. I am also (slowly) making my way towards a degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. The Lord put this on my heart when I was in High School, and now, 5 years post high school, I am plugging away at this dream! I also enjoy going on hikes with Jeremy and spending time with family… Sometimes by playing games, but usually talking and laughing. 😃 Snuggling in a fuzzy blanket with warm tea in my hand, homemade kettle corn, and a movie are also pretty high on my list of “things I like to do.” Then again, who doesn’t love popcorn, a funny movie, and a cozy blanket, am I right?!

Another one of my most favorite things to do is travel!! My mom is from Chile, so ever since I was little, I took airplane rides to visit family and go on missions trips to Mexico. So, when I turned 18, I decided to fly across the globe to spend 4 months in New Zealand, 1 month in Indonesia, and 1 month in South Korea! Fun fact about me: I was at the Winter Olympics in 2018!! It was super cool. In both ways that ‘cool’ could be used… Brrrrr.
