Faculty Profile

Advice to Incoming Students

Allow your communities to be broad as well as deep (make friends with people very different from yourself), find a place in your 4-year plan for a public health course.

Why I Came to Taylor

I believe in a Christian liberal arts education, and I would love to be involved in how God is preparing young people to bring their skills and passions to the work of the Kingdom.

Hobbies

Gardening and cooking (and eating), fishing, birding, traveling, being with people.

Major Career Accomplishments

The most satisfying and significant contributions of my career are related to the mentoring of students, and the developing of deep and lasting friendships across racial and cultural boundaries.  Racial reconciliation and addressing institutional racism are central to my work, including work in infant mortality prevention, diabetes and cardiovascular disease prevention, and HIV/AIDS prevention.
