Profile: As an ordained American Baptist pastor, who graduated from the Franciscan School of Theology and now serves at a United Methodist retreat center, I have a wide range of theological understanding and spiritual experience in the Christian contemplative tradition. From an evangelical background to now a Richard Rohr proclivity, I hold a more inclusive embrace of the Divine as I recognize the presence of God in everyone and everything. With doctoral studies in Franciscan ecological spirituality, I find Christ especially close in nature as I help others discover their True Self. Although I may be a "Rev. Dr.", I am just a seeker who enjoys companioning people on the journey. I am a trained spiritual director through the Gateways to God program at Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center (, and have been in direction myself for nearly 20 years. A native Californian and American-born Asian, I've been in Massachusetts since 2017 with my partner and two cats. And on a personal note, I run so I can enjoy chocolate cake and not feel guilty.
