Biography

It is my privilege to be nominated to serve as a board member of the Oklahoma City University. As a physician at trade, I work in the field of Internal Medicine and Pain Management. Having Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree with computer science background from University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, was not what God had in mind. His plan was medical school. 

Just before starting my residency at University of Oklahoma Heath Sciences Center, I worshipped God for the very first time in my life at Korean First United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City. This eventually led me to a path which I had never imagined. 

I am here to be a witness and a servant to God's vision. With meditation and application of His Word, I am to work together with my fellow Christians. I pray to serve with right discernment and obedience to every opportunity He provides me to fulfill His calling. I am actively serving at Korean First United Methodist Church as an ordained lay elder. I served as district lay leader to south Oklahoma City for 6 years and was elected twice to serve the general conference, with second time as chief lay delegate in 2016.

I am currently serving as Conference Associate Lay Leader to Oklahoma Annual Conference and board member to Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation.
