About

Tillie MakePeace is currently a program director for Janus Youth Programs, Inc., a children's mental health agency. She serves programs supporting runaway, homeless, at-risk youth and low-income families. She has worked with disenfranchised youth and their families for over 30 years.

In addition to Marylhurst, she teaches at Mt. Hood Community College, Portland Community College and also offers workshops dealing with racism, sexism, homophobia and ageism. She is an advocating change-agent using the belief that every person is created a spiritual whole and that wholeness can be remembered to heal, nurture and share hope.

Singing and studying gospel music is her heart's string to God.

She completed her Doctorate of Ministry at San Francisco Theological Seminary, studying spirituality as a primary healing element in mental health treatment.
