DMiss Coordinator/MAGL Pasadena Seminar Coordinator
I serve as the staff presence for MAGL students when they come to Pasadena for their second seminar. I coordinate, contribute and participate in the "Exegeting the City" exercise, and take care of all the necessary arrangements for the seminar, both before, during, and after.
As the MAGL cohort sequence courses meet the prerequisite courses necessary to join the DMiss program, I am also a good resource for MAGL students interested in pursuing doctoral work at Fuller. I formerly served in Colorado as a Coordinator for the MAGL program, so I am very familiar with how the MAGL works.
I joined the MAGL team in the summer of 2010, while completing my DMin in Transformational Leadership from Baake Graduate University. I served for a year in the role of MAGL Coordinator in the main office in Colorado Springs. When the opportunity to move to Pasadena and serve as the DMiss Coordinator became available in the summer of 2011, I volunteered to fill the position and am now the full-time staff person in Pasadena.
Born and raised in Downers Grove, Illinois, I am a second-generation Taiwanese American.
From 2004-2006 I taught English in Beijing at the Beijing Institute of Technology. For the next four years I worked with an English speaking church plant in Taipei while drinking lots of bubble milk tea and eating street food.
I enjoy comparing contemporary art in different areas of the world, finding obscure coffee shops, and collecting tea pots. In Colorado, I discovered the many service opportunities and cultural events available in Colorado Springs. Now, I am now enjoying the variety and abundance of missional and cultural engagement opportunities Los Angeles county affords and enjoy serving the MAGL students in their tour of LA during the second seminar.
