Before joining WCA, Keith worked as a pastor in North Carolina, leading congregations in environmental stewardship and the prevention of gun violence. Feeling a pull into the environmental nonprofit world, Keith is excited to focus his energy on building a healthy and just future for all. He holds bachelor’s degrees in music education and religious studies from the University of Central Arkansas and a Master of Divinity from Duke University. He also is ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). An avid fly fisher, Keith’s environmental justice journey began in graduate school when he fell in love with the Southern Appalachian Brook Trout. Outside of work, you can find Keith carving wooden spoons and bowls, playing banjo, singing along with Willie Nelson, or standing in a stream with his wife Leigh.
