She was recognized as Distinguished Teacher in 1986 and awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award by Henry Kendall College in 1992. Her care of the William H. and Rita Bell Lectureship and her advisory work for the Gilcrease Museum are only two examples of her service to the Tulsa community.

Dr. Hittinger enjoyed an international reputation for her work in Carmelite Studies, particularly for her translations of John of the Cross, “The Living Flame of Love” (1995), and for her groundbreaking book “Elijah Prophet of Carmel” (2003). Her research was supported by the National Government of Spain, the Ford Foundation, and Fordham University.
