Dr. Tommy Carrington, Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology, has worked for Trinity since 1996, but his work until recently was at Trinity’s Florida campus. He has served as a juvenile justice chaplain, and ministries director for Miami Youth for Christ.

As a designer and artist, she is passionate about a variety of media including printmaking and illustration.
