I am a member of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, where I regularly present my
scholarship and where I interact with many other Christian Psychologists. 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.
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.
