  • My Network

My work has been published in Journal of Psychology and Christianity and Journal of Psychology and Theology, and I have served as a reviewer for both Journals.

  • My Story

    Both of my grandfathers were pastors, and one set of grandparents were missionaries. As a child and young adult I spent three summers on mission stations in different parts of Africa, which gave me a life-long love of culture and travel. As a faculty member, I have led service learning teams to Austria, China and Hong Kong, and Poland (where I have been over a dozen times). Although I initially thought of becoming a pastor or missionary, I realized in college that I could serve God and my fellow human being by studying human behavior through both psychological and theological lenses. I love bringing my clinical experience to bear on the content that I teach in the classroom.

    Favorite Course to Teach:

    All of them! I really couldn’t pick just one.
