Aimee Patterson is a proud graduate of Booth University College, where she pursued a joint Bachelor of Arts-Bachelor of Theology degree. This provided her a foundation in biblical and theological studies. Subsequently Aimee undertook graduate work at McGill University, completing her PhD in 2010. She specialized in religious ethics with a primary interest in bioethics. Her dissertation explored the nature of end-of-life care in an era of pervasive technology. This research sparked an interest in theological anthropology and what it means for medicine to benefit a human being.
Now the Christian Ethics Consultant with The Salvation Army Ethics Centre, Aimee engages in a number of areas of applied ethics, including many social justice concerns. Aimee has taught both ethical theory and applied ethics, including comparative bioethics and professional ethics in spiritual care.
Aimee currently lives in Winnipeg. She and her spouse have two young children.
