Tell us about your family. My husband and I met in college at University of South Carolina Upstate and have been married almost 8 years. We have 3 beautiful children: Karter is 5 and is in Pre-K4 at the SAR campus, Karsyn is 3 and will attend Ben Lippen in the fall, and Kori Grace is 8 months.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love spending time with my family. We love watching movies and attending sporting events.

What else would you like readers to know about you? I was born and raised in Asheville, NC, where Ben Lippen School first started. I didn’t know that until we toured Ben Lippen and thought it was such an amazing connection.

What do you love most about Ben Lippen? What I love most about BL is the community and family feel. When we toured BL, everything felt so natural and like the right fit for our family. I also love that students get to experience a Christian education. Our son loves to come home and tell us all the amazing things he’s learned about God and the Bible.

What do you love most about teaching PE and coaching basketball? I love getting to see the kids compete and have fun. But it’s bigger than sports/basketball, it’s about building kids and teaching them about teamwork, accountability, positive attitudes and, most importantly, winning for Christ/eternal life all which carry into adulthood and life.

Phil 4:13 is something I live by. I am so thankful God seen fit and opened the door for my family to be a part of Ben Lippen. It has been an amazing year.
