Katherine Veach is a Ph.D. student in New Testament at CGU, where she works with the influence of Greek and Latin literature on early Christian composition. She is particularly interested in the Gospel of Luke and the story it tells—primarily so she can describe herself with the fantastic term “narratologist.” Before coming to CGU, Kat received her B.A. in Religion and Greek from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and her M.A. in Religion from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She misses the South, but she likes to think that she can make the best buttermilk biscuits in Southern California.
Kat has taught in a variety of settings, including instructing intense courses in Greek and Latin for Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth, facilitating online courses for the University of Phoenix Online and teaching 7th- and 8th-grade English at Montgomery Bell Academy, a boys’ school in Nashville. She also worked for five years as a journalist for two different daily newspapers, where she covered beats ranging from Sports to Religion to Features. Kat began working at the Writing Center in Fall 2008.
