I started teaching at George Fox in 2005 and totally enjoy the blessings of teaching here. I value the freedom to speak of the Creator God as we discuss his creation and appreciate how fearfully and wonderfully he has made us. I am thrilled to be working with students who are spreading their wings and figuring out how God has gifted them and where he is calling them.

I love the human body and am amazed by its intricate design and how well it is structured and organized to actually work. In addition to teaching about how the body works, I also get to teach about how things go wrong (pathophysiology) and then how we attempt to fix them with pharmaceutical agents (pharmacology).
