After earning a Bachelors of Fine Arts in visual communication design from Kent State University, Kate relocated to Boston and spent five-years as a corporate art director and graphic designer before beginning a second career in theology. She completed a Master of Arts in theological research at Andover Newton Theological School and is currently a doctoral student in Practical Theology at Boston University. Kate integrates her design experience into theological research by working at the disciplinary intersection of graphic design and feminist practical theology with an interest in theopoetics. Her current projects include explorations in film and feminist pedagogy as well experimenting with graphic design practices as a hermeneutical partner in biblical interpretation and feminist ecclesiology. Kate also serves on the leadership committee of the Women’s Caucus of the AAR/SBL.
