Elisabeth Rain Kincaid is a doctoral student in moral theology at the University of Notre Dame. She lives in La Porte, Indiana, with her husband, the Rev. Thomas Kincaid. Elisabeth is a born and bred Texan, having grown up in Dallas and received her B.A. from Rice University in Houston and her J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. Before her doctoral studies, Elisabeth practiced law at a national firm and in-house at a private equity fund-of-funds in Dallas. She then spent several years serving as the campus minister to graduate students at Southern Methodist University, where she also received her M.T.S. from Perkins School of Theology. Elisabeth grew up in the Presbyterian Church, and was confirmed in the Episcopal Church in December 2010.
When not studying, Elisabeth enjoys reading fiction, hosting dinner parties at the rectory, and learning how to integrate life as a doctoral student and the wife of a parish priest. She is coming to appreciate the joys of small-town life through long walks with Thomas and Molly, their Labrador retriever.
