On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
My husband and I both wanted our children to attend a Christian school. When we moved from Atlanta to Mableton, Whitefield kept coming up in conversation - even with those who didn’t have kids! We truly felt that God led our family to Whitefield. Both of our girls have attended since PreK.

Why I love my job:
I love to spend time with children and see God at work in them as they learn new things and express Jesus’s love for us to each other. Chapel is always a wonderful time to see this at work - I will bring the tissues!
