Whitney Living, Co-Host
The past twenty (20) years of Whitney’s life has been dedicated to service. The voyage of her existence travels from adolescent-lodging in neighborhood drug houses to obtaining a Master’s Degree with the memories of life still securely placed in her mind. Through it all, the encouragement of others was her life’s dedication as she worked to rise above each situation and grab the hands of others as she inclined.
Even as she struggled, in her adolescence, Whitney spoke life into others. Though timid, she used every opportunity to encourage others. Outside of her pain, she found purpose in offering kind words and a smile to those that seemed down and/or lost.
After college, Whitney completed over five (5) years of work within the Correctional component of a Sheriff’s Department where her work in Motivational Speaking truly excelled. As the first Clinical Site Lead for an In-Home Family Therapy model in Lafayette Parish, she placed her personal trials on the kitchen table to achieve the mending of relationships and providing rationale for the family’s turmoil. Her work rendered successful outcomes and a constant feeling of fulfillment.
Time spent out in the field did not compare to work done with the men and women that resided in the housing units of the local jail. In varying positions, Whitney worked, with tremendous effort, to speak life into the facility. She spent time discussing inmate concerns and reminding them of the potential that they still possessed. Whitney felt that even if life was now different, there was a chance to give back to the communities that had been negatively-affected. “It is not who you are today, but who you can use your story to ultimately be” was and still is Whitney’s mentality. Today, she looks to use the depth of her story, the blessings of her success and the dedication of her love for others to keep pushing for a positive change in the world we see. How, you may ask? Easily, by changing the manner in which we look at it.
