Jeanmarie Wolf, Trustee

Jeanmarie Wolf, a Chicago area native, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a Master of Arts with a concentration on Student Affairs and Higher Education Administration from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Post college, Jeanmarie spent four years with the Marriott Corporation in the hotel division working in catering, convention, and event planning at properties in the Chicago area and St. Louis.

She then returned to her alma mater to concentrate on her area of specialization and held positions in Admissions, Alumni Affairs, and Development.

The allure of northern California and the small-town charm of St. Helena brought Jeanmarie to the west coast in 1996. Since moving to the area, Jeanmarie has been involved primarily in marketing and special events and has worked with several local wineries and organizations both in the profit and nonprofit sector, including The Calistoga and St. Helena Family Centers. She is an active supporter of the performing arts and sits on the board of The White Barn and The Napa Regional Dance Foundation.

As a parent of two daughters and a member of the school community, Jeanmarie has seen many changes in our schools. “While I am a proponent of public schools, I have experienced both public and private with my two daughters giving me additional insight into school systems.”  While her daughters were in school, Jeanmarie was involved with the Parent Group, Give Big! Steering Committee, Run Big! and served on several board subcommittees, including LCAP and Wellness.

Jeanmarie is a true believer in the statement, “It takes a village”, because a successful school district will function at its best when working together as a team with teachers, administrators, and parents.  Her goal is to reinforce this partnership as each faction shares a common goal; to create a public school system where every child will have an opportunity to learn, grow, and flourish in a safe and healthy environment.

“St. Helena is a wonderful place to raise children and we are fortunate to have innovative teachers and involved parents. As a trustee, I would very much like to see us focus on promoting our schools and garnering more community involvement, because a thriving school district will benefit not only our children but also all of St. Helena.”
