Whitney is originally from the beautiful mountains of Pikeville, Kentucky. She grew up in Eastern KY, and moved to Lexington, KY at the start of her high school freshman year. She graduated from Paul Laurence Dunbar in 1996 and immediately attended at LCC and has always had a passion for taking care of others. Whitney received her SRNA (State Registered Nurse Aide) certification at the age of eighteen and worked with Alzheimer and Parkinson’s patients for twenty years. She also did in-home care, where she enjoyed working with dementia patients and their families.
Whitney is a very proud mother to two children. Her daughter, Aleigha, is twenty-one years old, a UK college student and currently working part-time. Her son is sixteen years old and is a junior in high school. One of Whitney’s biggest joys is being a mom and watching her kids grow into amazing adults. She enjoys goings to her son’s basketball games and shopping with her daughter. Whitney is grateful to have a strong bond with her extended family as well as her six fur babies that keep her busy. Whitney has two dogs, Kobe and Romeo, an indoor cat named Fred, and three outdoor cats names Gypsy, Jasper, and Cray, who were all once strays. Whitney has always had a passion for loving and rescuing animals. Family, loved ones, pets and good friends are everything to her.
With a love for the outdoors, Whitney enjoys motorcycles, hiking, and relaxing on the lake. She also enjoys meetings and getting to know new people. Tiffany M. Hamilton, MSPT has introduced her to a lot of new things since working together, one of them being yoga. She now enjoys being home and unwinding with yoga and stretching. Mental and physical health are very important to her and now that her kids are older, she is focused on taking better care of herself.
