On a professional note


Why Whitefield?
I have been watching Whitefield Academy for a number of years. I have been especially impressed by how declarative Whitefield has been about its purpose as a Christ-Centered Preparatory School. It is the blending of these two declarations (Christ-centered and preparatory) that I desire to live out in my personal and professional life. I look forward to partnering with an exceptional teaching staff as we seek to bolster Christian families.

Why do you love your job?
Planting the seeds for growth is both challenging and fulfilling at the same time. Challenging in that we do not always see the results, and fulfilling as we see God work through the lives of our students. I believe that God has called me to use my gifts to further His kingdom. I relish the opportunity to align my calling with a school whose desire is to prepare students “who go on to college and life with a passion for learning, for others ahead of self, and for the living and active Jesus.”
