On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
Before starting at Whitefield, I lived in the area for about five years and was always drawn to the Whitefield community. When the opportunity to join presented itself, I jumped on it. Every person I meet and every interaction I have is warm, welcoming, and life-giving. The people at Whitefield love and encourage one another, spur one another on toward Christ, and are excited to do the work to which they have been called. It's a joy to not only be part of the Whitefield story, but in my role, also share it with others.

Why I love my job:
I love that admissions is all about partnering with families and building relationships. In this role, I am able to connect with parents and students, learn their stories, and share what makes Whitefield such an incredible place. The community and work here make my job so easy!
