Jack’s understanding of and affinity for independent K-12 schools are grounded in a lifetime of experience in the space – first as a boarding school student, then as a teacher, coach, administrator, head of school, and trustee. He joins CarterBaldwin from The Walker School, where he was Head of School from 2011-2022, overseeing the school’s largest capital campaign and spearheading the New Avenues Immersive Dyslexia Program.

In addition to his experience teaching, coaching, and leading, Jack served as chair of the Head of School Search Committee and Board Chair at The Stony Brook School, giving him yet another valuable perspective on school leadership and governance.
Jack holds a BA in Theatre from Davidson College, an MS in Athletic Administration from Georgia State University, and an MA in Education Administration from Columbia University, where he was a Klingenstein Fellow. He and his wife, Cathy, have been married for more than 35 years and have two adult children and two grandchildren. A native Atlantan, Jack is an avid Braves fan, a dedicated Sunday School teacher, loves working in the yard, and always looks forward to time on the lake or in the mountains with family.
