Born and raised in Penang, Malaysia, I came to the United States in 2000 to pursue my education. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees, both with honors, from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While in the process of completing the Master’s degree, I was a teaching assistant facilitating three undergraduate classes each semester. That opportunity helped me discover my passion for teaching and the personal fulfillment of investing in future generations through higher education.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oklahoma, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington, a National Certified Counselor, and an Approved State Clinical Supervisor. I have provided counseling services to individuals and families in private and non-profit settings, and served as a Site Director for a community mental health clinic. My professional clinical experience has also allowed to be a clinical supervisor supervising recently graduated and under supervision counselors.
In addition to counseling and clinical supervision, I teach graduate level courses related to counseling. I engage students in their learning and encourage them to be lifelong learners. This valuable work experience has broadened my understanding and appreciation of different learning styles and assisted in developing new ways to engage students.
In June 2018, I completed my doctoral studies in Counseling at Oregon State University. My dissertation topic is regarding professional identity development of counseling students. My research interest includes professional identity development, gatekeeping, resiliency and trauma, grief and loss, clinical supervision, and religiosity and spirituality. I have presented in various national and regional conferences for American Counseling Association (ACA), Association for Counselor Educators and Supervisors (ACES), Oklahoma School Counselor Association (OSCA), and Western Association for Counselor Educators and Supervisors (WACES).
I am married to my wife, Liz, and together we are raising our son, Aiden. Together, as a family, we like to take trips and family outings. My hobbies include swimming and spending time with friends and family. During the summer, I love to travel and grill.
