  • Ms. Christine Holladay

    Director of College Advising
    Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Christine arrived in St. Louis in 2002 and spent the next four years completing her B.A. in Psychology and Theatre at Washington University in St. Louis. After a year spent interning at the Catholic Student Center at Washington University, Christine began her career in education simultaneously working on her Master's degree and teaching fifth grade in Baltimore. As a member of Operation T.E.A.C.H. (Teachers Enlisted to Advance Catholic Heritage), Christine lived with other young people dedicated to education and social justice. 

    After completing her Master's degree, Christine moved back to St. Louis and began working on the north side of the city and was engaged in schools with the NativityMiguel model of education as a Graduate Support Director. In this role, Christine worked tirelessly to forge strong personal relationships with her students and families to support each student's academic and career goals to and through post-secondary completion. 

    A lay associate of the Sisters of St. Joseph - Carondelet, Christine feels very at home at SJA and is thrilled to work alongside the young people of the Academy as they strive to “make a profound impact in the world.” Christine’s favorite part of the college search and application process is helping students articulate their unique experiences, values, and worldview to college admission professionals through the personal statement (and when recent SJA grads come to visit).

    Outside SJA, Christine enjoys singing in groups (and an occasional solo), exploring the many cultural opportunities in the city, traveling (ask her about her five-week trip to visit colleges in the Northeast), reading, knitting, and laughing with friends.
  • Ms. Annie McKenzie

    After graduating from Fontbonne University, Annie is excited to return to St. Louis and join the St. Joseph's Academy community! Prior to her role at SJA, Annie worked in college admissions at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Throughout her time at UMKC, she worked in recruitment and took on leadership roles in UMKC's new student orientation and special events programming. Annie is currently in the process of completing her Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration at UMKC. 

    Annie attended an all-girls Catholic high school in Kansas City called Notre Dame de Sion and is passionate about the all-girls school experience and Catholic education. She prioritizes building relationships with her students and families and is excited to help students in their college exploration and finding their college "fit." 

    Outside of school, Annie enjoys celebrating life with friends and families, traveling, running/workout classes, and cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals!
