My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The loving community we share as faculty, staff, and students.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Serve as an Air Force Chaplain and spend time with my wonderful family.

In my classes, students can expect: That I will do everything I can to make class interesting and fun and to help them succeed.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Complete all your homework/quizzes. The #1 reason I believe students do not succeed is because they get zeros for not completing their work.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Compassionate, merciful, and humble people to everyone they meet.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: The job of a counselor is not to give advice, but to equip people to be better problem solvers so they can move toward God’s best for their lives.

A quote that influences how I live is: Love God. Love People.
