Will was born in Park Ridge, Illinois but grew up in Mount Prospect Illinois, Suwanee Georgia, and Raleigh North Carolina. Despite being born in the United States, Will is also a citizen of Switzerland. Being the third of six children, he realized his connection with kids at an early age while helping his mom with his three younger siblings while his dad would travel on business. Will graduated from William G. Enloe Magnet High School in Raleigh in 2011 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance and in Women’s & Gender Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2015. In college, he served as captain of the UNCG Spartan Cheerleading Squad and served on the Executive Board of Delta Chi Xi Honorary Dance Fraternity, Inc. Along with being a member of the TLS family, Will is a company dancer with the Greensboro Ballet and also teaches dance and gymnastics. When he’s not teaching or dancing, you can find Will at the closest coffee shop, keeping the peace during college basketball season (Mom went to Carolina & Dad went to Duke), vacationing at his family’s chalet in the Blue Ridge Mountains, volunteering with his mom at The Diaper Train at St. Saviour’s, running at the Duke Wall, and eating at local restaurants. Will loves working with all different ages of children and is so grateful to have been welcomed with open arms into The Little School at Duke family!
