Whitney is a third year student at Candler School of Theology, where she is pursuing her Masters of Divinity. She was born and raised in Atlanta and grew up in the Baptist Church. After a stint of exploring denominations, she has found a home in both the Episcopal Church and the United Methodist Church. Whitney intends to utilize her seminary education to become a licensed social worker/counselor. She has a passion for working with youth and young adults, college students exploring their faith, LGBT families, and the arts–specifically musical theatre, as well as looking at connections between faith and the rest of our busy lives and world we live in. When she’s not working, she enjoys attending concerts of all sorts, baking, hiking, and binge-watching crime dramas.
Having previously worked for Agnes Scott College, Whitney is putting to good use her creative talents by coordinating GIPL’s extensive communications efforts and helping to keep the GIPL headquarters organized. Whitney calls Neighborhood Church in Candler Park her current church home.
