In addition to her teaching and mentoring roles, she provides oversight for Advanced Studies programs, Formation, and Faculty Development.

She has focused on leadership development through theological education, discipleship, and formation. She also holds ThM and DMin degrees as well as a MSc in counselling.

Her PhD explored a gap in the literature related to mentoring within Asian theological education. Her grounded theory multi-case study identified that participation in faculty-led mentoring groups was a liminal experience that drew Asian theological students from 11 countries into a relational mentoring process with long-term impact in their perspective, lives, and ministries.
