After graduating Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. in Psychology from Hendrix College in 2014, Blake joined the Our House team as a Summer VISTA with the Our Club Youth Program. Blake knew he wanted his career to revolve around serving others, especially youth, in the community and helping them become their best selves. He could imagine Our House in that career path, especially through the model of previous Hendrix alumni serving here. Our House was the best start that he could have imagined; here, he has made an impact, joined a family, and grew into his own. His goal this term is to leave Our House with a streamlined system of recruiting, retaining, and raising up National Service Members. Outside of his service, he can be found engaging in a variety of athletic activities (Brazilian jiu-jitsu, swimming, dancing, cycling, soccer) or relaxing with friends and family around a movie, video game, or board game. In addition, he serves with a number of other organizations including the Multi-Faith Youth Group, Second Presbyterian Church, and Mercy Community Church of Little Rock.
