School Staff – Lori Ott

Meet Lori Ott — Office Assistant

Why I love St. John School?

I love the energy and positive attitude I find here at the school.  The overwhelming welcome I received when I came over from the parish office was amazing.  The strong faith, generosity and compassion for others makes it a great place to be.  Feels like a big family.

My favorite part of being at SJS?

I love watching the kids learn new things.  I very much enjoy helping them out when they are in need of help.  The best part is learning new things from the students.  I feel like I am learning new things everyday.

What I like to do outside of school?

I love being a mommy to my 2 kids Olivia and Grant and also a wife to my wonderful husband Kristopher.  Together as a family we enjoy camping, being outside, swimming and any other activities we can find. 

My education

Attended Kaukauna Catholic Schools through grade school.  Graduated from Kaukauna High School.  Earned my Bachelors of Science with a double major in Accounting and Finance from UW Oshkosh.

My professional training

I worked for 15 years at Thrivent Financial in the Mutual Fund Accounting department.  Starting as an intern in High School and working my way through college. Moving on to work part-time at the parish office as a Financial Analyst working with accounting and scrip.  All of my prior work experience has made me the person that I am and I am grateful for them all.  But working with the staff and students over here at school has been a greatly fulfilling experience for me.
