Whitney is the Chief Operating Officer of STRIVE Preparatory Schools, a network of 11 public, charter schools in Denver that are committed to providing an excellent, college-preparatory education to students in the city’s most underserved communities.  In her 11 years with STRIVE Prep, Whitney has worn many different hats (working on everything from finance to construction management to school safety) as the organization has grown from 100 students to more than 3,500 students. Her expertise in these areas will be a boon for ACA. Prior to joining STRIVE Prep, Whitney taught 3rd and 4th grade in Houston. She holds a B.S. in Human & Organizational Development with an emphasis on Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness from Vanderbilt University.

Whitney and her husband, Justin, have three children at ACA/ACP in 3rd grade, kindergarten, and Pre-K. They are thankful to be part of such a caring school community and love that their children's education is grounded in the gospel as they learn about the wonders, beauty, and history of God's creation.
