I'm excited to work with you at NCCA! This is my 3rd year with the school and my 7th year as a school counselor.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Wheaton College in Illinois and my Master’s degree at UNC Chapel Hill. Prior to joining NCCA I worked as a middle school counselor at GEMS World Academy in Dubai, UAE and as a high school counselor at East Chapel Hill High School.
I have an amazing wife, a 10 year old daughter, and baby girl who was born in May 2020. In my own life I love sports, especially soccer and wrestling which I played in high school and college. I also love to travel, and I have been to 22 countries and 48 states.

Before becoming a school counselor, I attended Ferrum College in VA where I received bachelor degrees in Psychology and Music, and then Indiana University of Pennsylvania in PA where I received my Masters Degree in School Counseling.
