Whitney graduated from Mays Business School at Texas A&M University with a double major in both Business Honors and Management, while simultaneously earning a Nonprofit and Social Innovation Certificate. Her educational focus and past internship experience is concentrated around the nonprofit sector, where Whitney’s passion for helping others became a driving force behind her position at The Magdalen House.

Whitney’s understanding of development in the nonprofit sector was particularly cultivated during her participation in the Strategic Philanthropy course, during which nonprofits submitted applications to be awarded grants by students in the class. This unique experience allowed for a better understanding of the grant request and award process from both the perspective of the for-profit and foundation-based sectors.  It also prepared her to better serve as a stronger advocate of causes for which she so deeply cares while also reinforcing her interest in the nonprofit sector and its achievements for those in need.

She is looking forward to continuing her education through a more in-depth study of alcoholism to better understand the women for whom and with whom she will be working. Working at The Magdalen House is an incredible opportunity to begin her life’s mission of championing all women seeking positive change in their lives.
