My husband Nicolas and I have been married for fifteen years. We met while attending seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Nic is a minister at a church in Fort Mill. We have one daughter named Dakota who is thirteen years old. I love seeing what God is doing around the world. I have done international mission work as well as domestic urban mission work. Nic grew up as a minister’s kid, and his mother was born on the mission field in Paraguay. Nic, Dakota, and I love to travel and meet people from all over the globe.

Our motto states that we are preparing our students to go out and bless our world as disciples of Jesus Christ. That’s exactly what I see happening here. Our teachers, staff, and administrators are pouring into our students, not just information about subjects, but also knowledge about God. If we help the children grow in their walk with God, it will help them to succeed in college and beyond.
How is faith and learning integrated at WCCS?
Faith is an integral part of everything that we do here. Our faith guides us in what we teach and how we teach it. Even when a class uses secular books, the teachers are constantly putting God in the picture. Our lesson plans are made with an entire section to help us plan how to incorporate Christian principles in the curriculum. God is definitely at the forefront of everything that we do here.

WCCS students leave school well-equipped to live in the world and contribute to it. The WCCS faculty and staff really do strive to help students become better disciples for Christ no matter what they will be doing in the future.
Share a moment from your time here at WCCS that stands out as something you never want to forget.
While teaching chemistry at the high school, I repeatedly teach them how God designed the world so intricately and how amazing it is. Chemistry is probably one of the best classes to learn about this. I love seeing the students’ faces when they “get it” - that God truly is absolutely amazing!
