Title: Admissions Director for Lower School
Tell us about yourself. I am married to Travis and we have three children who are all starting Ben Lippen this year: Lucy Mills is rising 5th grade, McClain is rising 4th, and Layla will be in the Pre-K3 program. This is our family’s first year at Ben Lippen and we couldn’t be more thankful to be a part of the community.
How do you like to spend your free time? In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach, watching my children play sports, meeting my sister to walk, and being with friends.
Why do you choose to work at Ben Lippen? The leadership and the teachers are a winning combination and I am looking forward to getting to know even more of the students and their families this year.
What do students get at Ben Lippen that they won’t get somewhere else? I am an advocate of Christian education. The years we have to influence the next generation for Christ is a very limited window. Having our children in a Christian school allows more time for discipleship while also engaging in a strong academic foundation.
What are you passionate about? As a young girl, the Lord placed orphan care and adoption on my heart. I wasn’t quite sure how that would play out in my life, but I trusted that God would reveal how I could serve Him in this area. While my husband and I have traveled internationally to do mission work in various orphanages, ultimately God led us to the journey of foster care. In a story only He could orchestrate, we had the privilege of adopting our youngest child after fostering her. I love sharing with others the importance of foster care and the joy of adoption.
