Ingrid returned to TEDS from teaching as Assistant Professor of Old Testament at the Scandinavian School of Theology in Uppsala, Sweden, where she maintains an affiliation. While working on her PhD, she taught as adjunct faculty at TEDS in the Department of Old Testament and Semitic Languages seven years, and also at North Park Seminary in Chicago. She completed her dissertation on the meaning and theology of evil in the Hebrew text of Genesis in 2013, and her MDiv in 2007 at TEDS.

Her current research focus is on good and evil. She is ordained through the Fellowship of Christian Assemblies. Previously, Ingrid worked with Theological and Cultural Thinkers through Navigators to develop educational and spiritual formation materials, served as Director of Women’s Ministries at an EFCA church, and has been teaching in various fields since 1984. She also lived in Israel while conducting research for her prior M.S. in Nutrition, with numerous return visits.

While a student at TEDS, Ingrid was president of TEDS Trinity Society of Women and participated in organizing Trinity’s first Women’s Theological Conference. Ingrid teaches, preaches, and is a conference speaker in various contexts on topics of evil, suffering, forgiveness, hope, identity in Christ, the goodness of God, and biblical leadership. She is a widow with a wonderful family, and enjoys deep conversations, and any activities in the beauty of nature.
