Originally from Birmingham, AL, Luke moved to Nashville, TN, to pursue his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University, graduating in 2005.  He spent the next thirteen years as the Program Director for his childhood summer camp, Camp Laney, in Mentone, AL.  Luke was responsible for the day-to-day operations and activities of the camp and the hiring and training of the summer camp counselors. During his time at Camp Laney, Luke also earned his M.Ed. in Human Development Counseling from his alma mater and is currently a Board-Certified Counselor.  He served as a primary therapist and the head of adolescent therapy for the Integrative Life Center in Nashville and has experience working with clients with a wide variety of mental health issues.  In 2010, Luke married his wife, Ivey, followed by the birth of their beautiful daughter, Annie, and a move back to Birmingham in 2017.  Then in 2018, Luke started his journey with DREAM4, followed by the addition of another beautiful baby daughter, Alice, in April 2019. 

Luke’s passion for helping others and over a decade of experience in human and personal development made joining DREAM4 a natural fit.  He believes that “Life doesn’t get better by chance; it gets better by change,” and sometimes people just need help and encouragement to make the first step along the path to self-discovery.
