Dr. Voelkl is blessed to serve as the Principal and Vision Leader of Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic School.

She possesses a Bachelor of Art degree in elementary education from Saint Louis University, a masters in educational leadership from Maryville University, and her doctorate in educational leadership from Maryville University.
Prior to arriving at Saint Charles Borromeo, Dr. Voelkl spent 12 years at New City School working as both a kindergarten and fourth grade teacher. She also served as a curriculum coordinator and leader of the teacher mentor program and staff professional development program. Following New City, she spent three years at Harvest Ridge Elementary in the Francis Howell School District as a fifth grade teacher. In addition to her work in the classroom, she also worked as an elementary curriculum writer and Leadership Intern.
When not walking the halls of Borromeo, Dr. Voelkl enjoys spending time with her three children, Lucy, Andrew, and Jackson. All three are students at St. Charles Borromeo, which is a significant motivating factor in Dr. Voelkl's continued efforts to create a learning experience that seeks to grow and challenge all of her students. Dr. Voelkl's husband, Scott, an administrator in the St. Charles School district, is also a frequent source of knowledge and inspiration.
The Voelkl family enjoys weekly trips to the Hill where Dr. Voelkl enjoys reliving her childhood memories. She believes that through faith and family Borromeo can provide a home for all who enter its doors.
