I have been serving as an adjunct faculty member at SUM for the past eight years. In addition to my teaching I serve as the Congregation Care Pastor for my church in Oakland and provide professional counseling as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist to church and community members. Since I have master’s degrees in both theology and psychology and have worked as a supervisor for child protective services and directed a residential drug rehabilitation program in Oakland I have a lot of training and experience in working with teens, young adults, and families. At SUM I have enjoyed teaching both Bible and theology classes as well as the general education classes for which I am qualified. Since my undergraduate major AT UC Berkeley was in history, I especially enjoy teaching church history and background information for Biblical studies including Old and New Testament introductions and the historical context of books of the Bible.
