Beth Haile is an assistant professor of moral theology at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. She received her doctorate from Boston College in Theological Ethics in 2011. Her dissertation entitled “A Good Appetite: A Thomistic Approach to Eating and Body Image Disorders in American Women” explored the moral psychology underlying thin-ideal internalization, the process by which women become habituated to see extreme thinness as a good. Beth is married and is expecting her first child in January.

Regis College is the Jesuit School of Theology in the University of Toronto and a founding member of the Toronto School of Theology.

Members of the public interested in theological education are invited to attend an open house in October and March each year.
