JSerra Catholic High School announced today that Michele Anne Ramirez, a financial executive with more than 20 years’ experience, will fill the newly created position of Chief Financial Officer.
“We are pleased to add an executive with Michele’s financial experience and passion for Catholic education to our senior management team,” CEO Frank Talarico said. “This is another important milestone as we take our place as one of Southern California’s finest private high schools.”
Ramirez’s broad work experience ranges from consulting on Advanced Medical Optics, Inc.’s $800 million acquisition of Intralase to directing strategic financial operations for Apria Healthcare, Inc. to serving as a financial resource manager for Hines Horticulture in Irvine.
She said she is excited about working in Catholic education – a passion of hers. Her family was among the original Serra Catholic School families, and she and her husband served as co-presidents of Santa Margarita Catholic High School’s boys’ volleyball booster club.
“It is a privilege to lead JSerra’s financial team and contribute to the growth of an organization centered in my faith tradition,” she said.
