After attending a semester at St. Charles Community College right out of high school, Jonathan Hunn transferred to Rockhurst College (now Rockhurst University). There he earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in humanities. He also received an Associate of Art’s degree in nursing from Lincoln University. 

“During my undergrad I had the opportunity to intern for the American Psychological Association in Washington D.C.,” Jonathan said. “This experience broadened my view on mental health issues and put me on the path of my current career as a therapist.” 

After his undergrad, Jonathan immediately enrolled in graduate school at Lindenwood University to pursue a master’s degree in counseling psychology. He only spent a semester there before ultimately transferring to Webster University in El Paso, Texas. 

In Texas, Jonathan worked for the Texas Department of Protective Services (CPS) for eight years before coming back home to Missouri. 

“My tenure at the state was bitter sweet. There were the rewarding times counselling families on reunification and on the other side there were the horrible cases of abuse and neglect that I still think about to this day.” 

Back in Missouri, Jonathan started working at several universities teaching as an adjunct faculty member and counselor. 

“Teaching and counseling are truly my passion. I love teaching students and being a part of their educational growth as well as counseling them, which provides emotional growth for the students I meet.” 

Now a mental health therapist for SCC, Jonathan credits a church mentor, April, with giving him the best advice and career guidance. 

“Without her, I don’t know if I would be the counselor that I am today.”

During his time at SCC, Jonathan hopes to use his doctoral dissertation research to develop initiatives to better understand and serve students who have been historically marginalized. 

“I would like to bring positive awareness to mental health and the services that are available to our students and the SCC community.”
