Western Carolina University, 2013

M.A. Ed., School Counseling


Mars Hill University, 2011

B.A., Psychology


After spending nine years living and working near Asheville, NC, I am excited to finally be back in my hometown. After graduating from Trinity in 2007, I attended Mars Hill University where I earned a B.A. in Psychology, with minors in Sociology and Criminal Justice. I was also a two-sport athlete while at MHU, playing football and competing with the track & field team. After MHU I went straight into graduate school at Western Carolina University where I earned a M.A. Ed. in School Counseling. Just before completing graduate school I began working as a full-time school counselor at Madison High School in Marshall, NC. Along with being one of two counselors, I acted as the head boy's and girl's indoor and outdoor track & field coach. During this time I was also an assistant football coach, with stints coaching offensive line, linebackers, defensive backs, and wide receivers. In the Summer of 2016 I accepted a counseling position at THS, and my wife and I made the move down the mountain. At THS, I am the primary counselor for students with last names that start with L-Z (although I will try to help anyone no matter of the last name). I also act as an assistant coach for the football team, coaching offensive line, and I am the current head coach for the JV football team. I am proud of where I grew up and I am happy to be here and to be a part of the tremendous growth at Trinity.
