Amy has been the Honors Program Director since 2012 and has been teaching Philosophy at BW since 2007.  Her interests in Philosophy are related to ethics, social justice for marginalized groups, gender and sexuality.  She loves working with the Honors Program because it gives her the opportunity to help amazing students develop their passions and grow into skilled, reflective, and articulate young adults who are ready for the challenges and opportunities of the world beyond college.


In her spare time, she loves gardening, playing with her two cats and two dogs, biking around the Cleveland Metroparks, and enjoying the local art scene.

Katie has been with the Honors Program since August 2012 and will most likely be the first person you talk to in Honors. She is passionate about lifelong learning and serving others, which makes the Honors Program a perfect fit for her. Katie enjoys getting to know the students and seeing them grow through their college experiences.


Outside of BW, she loves spending time outside with her husband and sons, photographing everything in sight, singing in church, and reading when there is a moment.
