Meet Our Team

Sharon Ryan, Director  
I am a philosophy professor at WVU.  I teach a variety of courses, including: Theory of Knowledge, Philosophy of Religion, and Introduction to Problems of Philosophy.  My philosophical interests are wide ranging, but my current research focuses on wisdom, intellectual virtue, epistemic obligations, and forgiveness.  I am currently writing a book, under contract with Bloomsbury Press, on the nature of wisdom and intellectual virtue. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, practicing yoga, running, cycling, gardening, listening to music, making pottery, reading about nutrition, fitness and health, and wrestling with the big questions of human existence.

Ken Enoch, Technical Supervisor
I am the Administrative Associate for WVU's Department of Philosophy, Religious Studies Program, and the Humanities Program.  I earned my BA in Parks and Recreation at West Virginia University in 1999.  I enjoy Zumba, watching sports, playing video games, and doing creative things with technology.

Kayleigh Meeks, Student Intern
As a WVU philosophy major, I am very much interested in studying both logic and ethics, particularly John Stuart Mill’s utilitarianism. I work in the WVU Philosophy Department as a research assistant for Professor Geoff Georgi, and as a student supervisor with WVU’s Mountaineer Line. My free time is spent working as the historian of the WVU Philosophy Club, and reading anything that I can get my hands on. I am a dedicated Mountaineer football fan, an avid archer, and an adventurous chef.

Kennedy Roberts, Student Intern
I am from Spencer, West Virginia.  I am in my junior year at WVU, majoring in philosophy and political science.

Gabrielle Sellitti, Student Intern 
I am from from Weirton, West Virginia.  I am a junior, studying strategic communications at West Virginia University. My major is emphasized in advertising and my minor is creative writing. My goal in life is to stay in an artistic field and work as a creative director for an advertising agency.  My passion is writing, and I hope to one day get my stories published.
