On a professional note



Why Whitefield:
I don’t think I chose Whitefield - I think God chose Whitefield for me. After two years of teaching in a public high school, I felt the Lord calling me elsewhere. One of my favorite parts of working with students is mentoring, and I felt like I was doing a halfway job of pouring into students when I couldn’t share the truth of the Gospel. After praying and waiting and praying and waiting, God opened the door for me to work at Whitefield, and I feel blessed to call it my professional home.

Why I love my job:
I love my job because the mission is alive at Whitefield. It is my honor to work with and lead committed faculty and staff who use their gifts and talents within their roles to point students to Christ. It is a blessing to partner with families who care deeply about the academic and spiritual formation of their children. Whitefield has a unique mission in its firm Christ-centered foundation and commitment to strong academics, and I am thankful to be part of what the Lord is doing here.
