Dr. Phil Pendley

It has been my pleasure and honor to work with Dr. Jalin Johnson for the past 6 years.  We have worked together in a number of capacities including the EDOL Program for the EDD in Organizational Leadership, serving on dissertation committees, and, since we both teach at the Menifee Campus, co-teaching our respective classes as opportunity presents itself.  I have found Jalin to be an expert in her areas of expertise and able to successfully interact with and assist students from undergrads to Doctoral candidates. Knowing and working with Dr. Johnson has added value, expertise, and fun to my experience with Brandman.

In addition to being an outstanding and intellectually strong scholar, Jalin possesses exceptional inter-personal abilities and constantly demonstrates the ability to connect successfully with students, staff, and all others she encounters.  She has a quick wit, an excellent sense of humor, and an ability to engage at a high level while maintaining a sense of fun and adventure in the intellectual discovery process. Jalin is a valued colleague because she combines focus on achievement with fun in the process.  She is a delight to work with and I believe she will add tremendous value to any team of which she is a part. I am fortunate to have her as a friend and colleague. Brandman is fortunate to have her as a faculty member.
