My Story

I have sat court side with student athletes, summited mountains with business professionals, paddled white water rapids with people from all over the world and been a personal financial planner for entrepreneurs and those who seek a different life path. My road to Warren Wilson College has taken many turns, and most of those turns led to teaching and interacting with students. This includes working with collegiate athletes through the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), serving as an educator in leadership and personal development with the North Carolina Outward Bound School, and founding my own financial planning company. Education is the primary driving force behind all my passions, and the philosophy and mission of Warren Wilson College let me take that passion to the next level.
