Katie Bartholomew Enrollment Manager

Hailing from Indiana, Kathryn has a love and affinity for education, performance, and most of all- people. Upon obtaining her Bachelors Degree in Theatre from Purdue University, she set out to act and teach in Los Angeles and Seattle, and then settled into Kansas City, Missouri some years later to gain her Masters of Fine Arts in Acting & Directing from UMKC. Kathryn moved to Chicago in 2009, and had the wonderful experience of working in Administration and Recruiting at Shedd Aquarium for some years. She considers it a great privilege to work with students and their families here at Josephinum. It is a one of a kind community for exceptional young women in the heart of this fantastic city. She cannot wait to tell you more!
