Alumnae Under the Spotlight
Dr. Barb Kolp-Jurss , ‘88
“Dr. Barb” as her patients like to call her loves treating kids because although they do get sick quickly they also get better quickly. She finds that even babies, when sick, can still “talk” to her.
Dr. Barb is an advocate of her education at Mount Mary: she loved the encouragement to be all you could be.
Dr. Barb can recall with ease her favorite faculty member – the one who really left their mark: Sister Michaela, organic chemistry. “What a neat lady.”
Dr. Kolp-Juss practices at the Good Hope Clinic and lives with her husband in Mequon.

Corry Jo Biddle, ‘04
"I loved all of my professors (especially the Sisters) and I felt like I was learning just as much about myself in each class as I was about the subjects. The curriculum was me, and each day I participated in class, attended a student government meeting, or helped out in the financial aid office, I knew I was getting closer to knowing what I was passionate about and using it to make a difference in the world."
The class sizes, academic rigor, and family atmosphere made me feel so at home. I felt like Mount Mary was always right there - under my nose and I'm so glad I didn't overlook it. The entire experience was wonderful!
Corry Jo graduated from Mount Mary College with degrees in business administration and professional writing. She currently sits Mount Mary College’s on the “Under 40” advisory group to the President.
