Laura Corbo

Development Office Specialist & Database Manager

“The Academy holds a special place in my heart as I have been privileged to witness my two children Gabriella ’13 and Larry ’18, immeasurably benefit from the Lacordaire experience in virtually every aspect of life, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally.” I spent the first 18 years of my career working for Hoffmann La Roche. In 2006, I was requested to volunteer in the Advancement Office. As time and duties increased, in 2009, I became the Academy’s full time Data Base Manager & Development Office Specialist. In this critical position, I am fully immersed in managing all the essential aspects of information and data necessary for emergencies, cultivation, appreciation, outreach and communications relating to our current and past alumni/na, faculty, staff, students, and friends of the Academy along with running our Academy fundraiser events. It is a very rewarding position, which allows me to be connected to the entire Lacordaire community! When not involved in organizing Academy events and special activities, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

I have been part of the Lacordaire Community since 2001. My daughter, Jill '05 was an Upper School student. I have been working at Lacordaire Academy for 10 years. I love the sense of community and family at the Academy. It is a pleasure to see all the smiling faces each day when entering through the doors.

Assistant to the Associate Head of School & Dean of Academics

This is my first year as a full-time member of the Academy staff, having previously been employed on a part-time basis during which time I covered various administrative positions. I have also volunteered in the High school as I am a parent of three girls who attend Lacordaire.

I graduated high school in Ireland before moving to England, marrying, and finally putting down roots in Verona N.J. I have 11 years’ experience in residential property management, prior to which I worked in the accounts department at The British Consulate in New York.

Registered Nurse

I am so excited to be joining Lacordaire as the school nurse. I have over 11 years of nursing experience including community health centers, public school and sleep-away camp. I enjoy working with children and helping them with their medical needs.

I grew up in Spain and Denmark and have lived in the New York area since college. My husband and I are blessed with five children and we live in Passaic, NJ. On the weekends we enjoy bike riding, ice cream parlors and garage sales.
