On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
The attraction of Whitefield was that of a Christ-anchored community that teaches, coaches, and leads from the inside out of every student and their family. I love the opportunity to develop transformational relationships every day and Whitefield Academy is a place that values that above everything else. The leadership and staff are passionate about their relationship with the Lord and are also driven to be excellent in all that we do.

Why I love my job:
There is no other job I can imagine doing that would give me so much joy. Every day I have the opportunity to spend time with faculty, staff, students, and parents with the goal of raising up a new generation of leaders that love the Lord.
