An alumna of AHA, Kathleen Walsh joined the religious studies faculty in 2012. Prior to teaching, she spent many years in academic publishing, where she worked as a manuscript editor specializing in theology, spirituality, and world religious traditions. She enjoys reading—particularly about writing, Buddhism, and contemplative spirituality—and just about any type of word game. As a self-proclaimed “word geek,” she is a firm believer in the Oxford comma and considers no day complete without doing the New York Times crossword puzzle. She also likes to hike, travel, and spend time with her family.
