Dear Friends of St. Joseph Academy,

I would like to begin by thanking you for your support of St. Joseph Academy – without friends like you our school would not be where we are today! It’s a great time for me to begin my tenure as the President/CEO, as we continue the remarkable metamorphosis of SJA. Over the years, we have transitioned from an orphanage to South Day Care, to the Child Development Center of St. Joseph, to where we are today: St. Joseph Academy, a premier 6-week to 3K Early Childhood Education Center and K4 to 5th grade Elementary School.

Being given the opportunity to take over at the helm of SJA is a dream come true for me – I am able to utilize my zest for working with children and families along with my faith to shepherd SJA to the next level. Passion has inspired my 20-plus year career as a nonprofit professional beginning with the YWCA, Neighborhood House of Milwaukee, COA Youth and Family Centers, and Rosalie Manor Community and Family Services.

With the goal of making a difference in the lives of others, it’s my desire to advocate for and encourage our students and families to be life-long learners! The acronym TIME (Teach, Inspire, Motivate, and Empower) will be utilized to help guide our leadership team and ensure that we are achieving our goals.

I’d like to express my gratitude for your support in person. Please join us as we raise community awareness of St. Joseph Academy at two upcoming events:

  • Grand Opening of Our School Building

    Thursday, September 17
    5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

  • Doors Open Milwaukee
