Miss Lisa James – Director of Advancement
ljames@skdschool.org

Miss James holds her Bachelor of Arts degree in Corporate Communications from Alvernia University.  Her background in Journalism, Marketing, Media & Public Relations is quite extensive.  While pursuing her degree, Miss James balanced her position of full time writer and editor of her university newspaper with her work in constructing PR, advertising and event planning campaigns for several non-profits in Reading, PA.  Craving a well rounded knowledge of the field of Communications, Miss James also began assisting (as an intern) WFMZ-TV 69 News, by producing the local day-side and night-side newscasts.  This work is what then led her to become a part of a producing team for national day time television in New York, NY.  After several years of working in the television industry, Miss James felt called to return to her faith based roots in Pennsylvania.  She recalled and missed the simple joys and pleasures of sharing her talents with local non-profits.  Before SKD School, her most recent endeavor, was working as the Director of a Catholic non-profit organization in Center City, Philadelphia.  Growing up with sixteen years of Catholic education under her belt, Miss James finds herself feeling right at home as the Director of Advancement for St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School in Holland, PA.  She is fully committed to creating an everlasting sense of sustainability and development for everyone here at SKD School.  She is driven by the anticipation of knowing that during their time here at St. Katharine Drexel School, the students will each discover a sense of meaning in their lives much like the one that she received during her formative years in grades first through eighth.

Mrs. Debra Guarino – School Secretary
mrsguarino@skdschool.org

Mrs. Guarino was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey.  In 1987 Mrs. Guarino moved to Holland with her husband where they raised two beautiful daughters.  The importance of a good education lies deep for the Guarino family and dates back to Mr. & Mrs. Guarino’s personal experience of having attended Catholic School for thirteen years of their own.  It was a no brainer for Mrs. Guarino that her daughters would also have the opportunity to attend Catholic school and the same now goes for her granddaughter.  Before working here at St. Katharine Drexel School, Mrs. Guarino and her husband owned and operated two Italian pizzerias!  Their very first shop was called Persi’s Pizza, located at the renowned New Jersey Shore.  After 5 years in the biz, they relocated the family business closer to home and opened TJ’s Pizza in Newtown, PA for 20 wonderful years.  When her oldest daughter was in first grade, Mrs. Guarino started as a volunteer at the school and eventually started working as the school secretary.  She has been a part of the SKD School community ever since!   Mrs. Guarino simply adores good music and her time at the beach. She was once on a talk show with Smokey Robinson.
