Meet Our Director, Quentona Whitsett

Hello, my name is Quentona Whitsett, and I am excited and honored to be your new Center Director at the Sunshine House.

I have three beautiful children ranging from ages 9 to 24. I recently moved to South Carolina from New Jersey to be closer to my family. I have over 17 years of experience working with children of all ages and directing facilities from Philadelphia to New Jersey. I have my bachelor’s degree in Education and am working towards my teaching certification.

Working with children has always been my passion. Being a part of the development and growth of children in all areas has been rewarding throughout my years working in education. I am also big on advocating for children and their families for services, children and parent rights, and other concerns that may arise. Please feel free to come to me if you ever have questions or concerns, or if you need resources of any sort. My doors are always open.

Meet Our Assistant Director, Rochelsa Burson

Hi, my name is Rochelsa Burson, and I am a native of South Carolina. I attended USC Sumter and Central Carolina Technical College. I have twenty-seven years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I’ve worked as an Instructional Assistant for ten years: nine years in Sumter School District and one year in Richland. 

I am the mother of two adult sons, one teenage daughter, and the grandmother of one grandson. Outside of work I enjoy family time, shopping, thrifting, decorating, and traveling.

I am a true believer in early education, and I believe learning begins in the womb. “The First Five Years have so much to do with how the next eighty turns out”- Bill Gates 

I am so excited to serve as the Assistant Director and to be a part of the Sunshine House team.
