Professional Summary

During college I originally planned to enter the teaching field but felt a calling to become an ordained pastor instead.


As a pastor I worked worked with congregations and communities of various ages and background. I served at a Korean church, Hmong churches, mixed community churches, and mostly White churches. Through these experiences I have come to realize that each community is different and unique in its own way but all churches/communities want what is best for themselves and those around them. Even though this goal may be reached differently from one place to another the realization that it takes a community to make a community thrive is never lost.


After over a decade or pastoral leadership (I also was a volunteer youth pastor while in seminary) I was happy with my life. In 2020 COVID19 took over the lives of many of us throughout the world and that was also true for many pastors. Throughout 2020-2021 I partook in over 30 funeral services, many of them because of COVID19. The sense of lost was overwhelming and even though I did not fully understand it at the time I was being worn down by this. It was not until the beginning of 2021 that I took a serious look at my career and decided that it may be time for a change. After talking to my friend, who is also a former pastor who changed her career and is now a full-time librarian, I felt a similar change in my life could be beneficial. Since August 2021 I have been working my way towards certification in hopes of being a full-time librarian.


With my experience working with others and people of various ages and backgrounds - I see myself as being a very versatile person. I am also confident in working by myself as long as I am given the support that I need to complete or progress in the job I am given. At the same time I am open to the thoughts and ideas of others and do not mind doing whatever it takes to get a job done well and in time.
