Dr. Kimberly Baker specializes in historical and spiritual theology. She seeks to draw from the riches of the Christian spiritual tradition to contribute to the ongoing renewal of the life of the Church. Her research focuses on Augustine's preaching on the life of the Church.

Dr. Baker's interest in theology first developed during her two-year post-college service experience as a campus minister in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa. She continues to be involved in cross-cultural mission and learning experiences and has traveled in recent years to Haiti and India.

Prior to joining the faculty of Saint Meinrad in 2012, she served on the faculty of Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA.
