After completing her B.A. (Liberal Arts – Great Books) from Thomas Aquinas College, and studying in Rome at the Angelicum (STB) and the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (STL & SThD), Dr. Pia de Solenni returned to the U.S. to do policy work in an effort to develop a more practical understanding of Thomistic Anthropology, Bio-Ethics, Feminism & Gender Studies, Marriage & Family, Culture and Catholicism. In 2001, St. John Paul II presented her with the annual Pontifical Academies Award for her published dissertation, Woman As Imago Dei.

She has represented the United States at the United Nations and the Holy See at the Organization of American States. She frequently comments in popular and academic circles as an ethicist and cultural analyst, and her work has appeared in various publications including The Wall Street Journal Europe, The Washington Post, National Catholic Reporter, Our Sunday Visitor, Patheos, and National Review Online. Currently a consulting member of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, she also serves on the advisory board of the peer reviewed journal Annales Theologici. Dr. Pia de Solenni has come to realize that almost every environment is a classroom of sorts: People of goodwill everywhere are looking to deepen their understanding of the deepest truths about the human person.
