Katie M. Deaver, Ph.D. is a native of Viroqua, WI. She holds a BA in Music and Religion from Luther College in Decorah, IA, as well as MATS, THM, and PHD degrees in Systematic Theology and Ethics from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
Katie's primary research interest focuses on understanding theologies of atonement within the contexts of power and violence in present day society. While she considers herself a scholar, it is her personal faith in God and God's people which inspires her to approach theology in ways that are accessible for the people in the pews on Sunday morning.
Since moving to the UP in 2018 Katie has enjoyed camping and hiking in the summer and snowshoeing and NMU hockey in the winter. She currently works as the Associate General Manager for ONE LICENSE, a sacred music licensing service.
