Ingrid McIntyre is the Executive Director and co-founder of Open Table Nashville. She graduated from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington D.C. in 2008 with a Masters of Theological Studies. Her journey thus far has been shaped by her work with Habitat for Humanity, as a Youth Minister at Christ United Methodist Church in Franklin, TN, and as the Director of Connectional Relations at the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry for the United Methodist Church. She currently serves on the Board of the Nashville Coalition for Homelessness, Nashville Transit Now and the Board of JustPeace: Center for Mediation and Conﬂict Transformation in Washington, D.C. Ingrid is inspired by heroes like Desmond Tutu, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Dorothy Day and strives to imitate their dedication to justice for the marginalized and love for all. If not painting, gardening, or militantly composting, she’s probably traveling, reading, working crossword puzzles, or kayaking at her parent’s farm.
In addition to playing with her super cute little one, she enjoys hiking, knitting, reading, gardening, and cooking.
