Born and raised in the Bay Area, I also spent several decades in the Korean church. During my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, I served in Korean Campus Mission, and earned my bachelors degree in English Literature, with a minor in Asian American Studies.
Upon graduation, I worked in Korea as a schoolteacher, and served at Onnuri Church in the youth ministry. I then moved to Southern California to enroll at Biola University for a masters of divinity degree. During this time I served in pastoral ministry for 8 years at 2 Korean churches.
From pastoral ministry, I discovered what my spiritual gifts were, and decided to transition to a different type of ministry: marriage and family therapy. I enrolled at Azusa Pacific University for a masters in clinical psychology degree, and am working currently to finish my clinical hours, in hopes of serving the Bay Area as a licensed therapist. I am now able to better understand and address the emotional and mental health needs of pastors and other servants in the church.
