 Anne Sandalls graduated from St. Ursula Academy and completed her education in Boston. She was a financial services executive and a management consultant in Boston and New York. Following retirement, she returned to Toledo and renewed acquaintances with former teachers and their colleagues at the Ursuline Convent Office and the Ursuline Center. She hopes to officially help the Center and its residents as a new Associate.

From Rebecca Mehring: “I am so grateful to be a new member of the Ursuline Associates. I have a long history with St. Ursula Academy and have always loved the leadership skills, service opportunities and fantastic education the school offers to young women. I graduated from SUA in 1994 and am currently the state fund manager as well as a teacher of the Women in Leadership class. I was drawn to becoming an Ursuline Associate because I would love to honor the charisma of Angela and help continue the legacy of this special place.”
