Whitney earned her B.A. in Psychology from the University of South Carolina and has been working for a non-profit in Charleston, SC, her hometown. She shares that she is very passionate about the work she does with pregnant teens in the area and that empowering young women is very fulfilling.
She plans to pursue he Master’s in Social Work in the Fall, continuing at USC.
On a personal note, she still enjoys running (she participated in cross country at Oak Hill Academy) and values her relationship with Christ. She credits OHA with helping her on her spiritual walk and believes “OHA shaped her into the motivated, compassionate woman she is today.” Whitney was a caring and involved member of our community and we are proud, but not surprised, that she has chosen a life in service to others.
