Ann Garrido is associate professor of homiletics at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO. While her first passion is teaching, for the past fifteen years, she has found herself increasingly drawn into administrative roles including (at varying points in time) serving as her school’s Director of the D.Min. in Preaching, Director of MAPS Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Director of Field Education, Director of Distance Learning, and Director of the Aquinas Ministry Integration Project. Garrido has served as senior editor of Human Development Magazine and is the author of eight books, including the award-winning volumes Redeeming Administration (Ave Maria Press, 2013) and Redeeming Conflict (Ave Maria Press, 2016). Ann now commits half-time to traveling nationally and internationally doing conflict education and mediation work with Triad Consulting Group, founded by two members of the Harvard Negotiation Project based in Cambridge, MA. She is married to a very patient husband and has one son who plays a mean ukelele.
