In addition to being a productive scholar and professor, Katie Dunleavy is an avid runner. Katie was a 2011 participant in the Philadelphia Marathon and the 2012 Rock ‘n’ roll Half Marathon, and she says that running helps her to do two contradictory things—focus on ideas and make decisions, as well as clear her head and move past nagging issues.
Katie teaches Interpersonal, Group and Team, and Intercultural Communication, and she loves to explore the way these areas provide insight into her desire to understand why people say the things they do.
A suburban Washington, D.C., native, Katie is a diehard fan of West Virginia (and La Salle) sports teams.
