Director of Student Development
Quentin Manuel was born in Bakersfield, CA, but moved to New Orleans at a young age and claims Louisiana as home. Quentin graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of General Studies (his parents were thrilled). His areas of concentration were Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, and History – as close to classic liberal arts education as he could get at a state school. He taught Middle School Math and Social Studies in inner-city New Orleans for a year before heading to graduate school at Asbury Theological Seminary outside of Lexington, KY. He spent 5 years pursuing two Masters degrees, and worked as an admissions counselor at the Graduate School level during most of this time. He has taught and tutored Hebrew and Greek for several years, and is thrilled to serve The Woodlands campus in his new role.
Quentin is married to his wife Michelle, and they have a 16-month-old son named Abraham. Quentin enjoys traveling, watching good movies, tinkering with his Raspberry Pi, and cooking.
