PhD Student, Theological Studies

About Joyanna

I am a PhD student in systematic theology, engaging with psychology and other sciences to explore what it means to be whole and well. My previous background is in linguistics, and I served in Bible translation with my husband and children in Papua, Indonesia, for five years. I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona but now call Portland, Oregon “home base.” Outside of theology and philosophy, my passions are mental health, cycling, comic books, and cosplay.
