LaWayne Segers – Employee Spotlight

LaWayne Segers is the driving force behind the Activities at our Mountain Lakes Resort. He heads up a team that plans events and specialized weekends for our campers to enjoy such as Friday night Bingo, Karaoke, S’mores by the campfire, and a variety of games.

LaWayne started working for Ocean Canyon almost 4 years ago as a Security Guard/Host. When a position opened up for Activities, LaWayne decided he wanted to interact more directly with our members and use his creativity. He’s enjoyed getting to know people from all over the states through his position. When asked by new campers, he recommends they join the activities to get to know other campers. He also suggests asking questions and interacting with other campers as much as possible while visiting Mountain Lakes. You never know when you might meet your new best friend!

He has brought a variety of skills to this position including working in management for a pest control company for over 20 years and being a deputy at the Sheriff’s Department. These previous positions taught him the art of commitment along with flexibility.

When not at work, LaWayne enjoys helping take care of the animals at his girlfriend’s family farm. He also finds time to play the piano and gets together with other musicians at the resort to play whenever they can. LaWayne is a dedicated family man with 2 kids, a daughter that is 21 years old and a son that is 24 years old, and a one year old granddaughter.

We asked LaWayne what he like best about his job and he said it was meeting new people and the feeling of being on vacation instead of working. He said he’s very grateful and thankful that he gets to have a job like this.

OCP is certainly grateful and thankful to have him!
