Cor Jesu welcomes Abby Samel, our new Director of Advancement

Cor Jesu is excited to announce the hiring of Abby Samel as our new Director of Advancement.

Abby comes to us most recently from St. Louis Children’s Hospital. She brings a unique combination of experience in both advancement and communication/marketing through her work in journalism and media relations both with various news outlets including NBC, and, most recently, at Saint Louis Children’s Hospital, where, through partnership with the Foundation there, she used her media skills to raise donor awareness and create and implement donor strategies.  Abby’s passion for Catholic education is reflected in her years at Sacred Heart High School in Sedalia, MO, at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN and in her current role as an active parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in University City.  

Abby will assume Katie Thiemann's former role as Director of Advancement while Katie moves into her new role at CJ as Director of Leadership Giving.

Welcome Abby!
