    In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you’re doing now?
    My experience at Ursuline provided discipline and the ability to think beyond the topic or task at hand to gain a more comprehensive perspective. It also gave me a foundation for gathering insights from others and for seeking continuous improvement. It allowed me to tie my faith into all that I do while also embracing diverse perspectives and being respectful of the beliefs of others.

    In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you’re doing now? 
    Our motto: Serviam. My business is 100% based on serving others.

I invest my time, energy and heart into helping my clients get healthier and live their best lives.

  • March Alumnae Spotlight, Nancy "Ching" Blamphin Brodsky, Sioux of 1969

    In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you are doing now?
    Like a reliable rhythm of a metronome, the many protocols of the Ursuline nuns repeatedly demanded my attention to the task at hand whether my mind drifted from class into the beauty of the courtyards or I had failed to polish my badly scuffed saddle-oxfords the night before. Thirteen years they bravely challenged my stellar average academic performance, rightly so, and thank goodness they did. I am especially grateful for the training with Mrs. Mock and the Queen’s Players and Sister Immaculate’s chorus, both with whom I not only found my voice, I learned to listen and observe. For this Ursuline Girl, fierce love, dedication, and cherished influences enabled me to navigate through life where, as we know, nothing stays the same.

  • February Alumnae Spotlight, Nikki Trufant-Wade, Merry Mac of 1997

    In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you’re doing now? 
    My years at Ursuline taught me how to seek God's Word for myself and know that nothing is impossible. I was surrounded by teachers and administrators that encouraged me to ask questions - especially when it came to matters of faith - and to find answers in the Bible. The more I sought the Word, the more I grew to know myself, and the bolder I became in all that I've done and am doing. I am passionate about teaching little ones that the Bible is the greatest adventure book they'll ever read and that Jesus is the greatest superhero they'll ever know. It’s because of those seeds planted at Ursuline that I'm able to do all that I do in my professional and ministerial life.
