Meet the administrative leaders at St. John Vianney

  • Mary Kearns

    School Counselor

    Mrs. Kearns joined the wonderful faculty at Saint John Vianney school as a school counselor.  I received my bachelor’s degree from Mercyhurst University and my master’s degree from Saint Bonaventure University.  I serve all students at SJV school Pre-k-8th grade.  As a school counselor I strive to serve as a guide, a role model, an advisor, a supporter, and a reliable source of stability for students, parents and teachers.  It is my goal to work and do everything to support the student’s pursuit of academic, social and career success.  My goal is to identify students’ challenges, guide them in discovering them, and equip them with strategies and the ability to know how and when to use them.  I love being able to work at SJV where I can help people every day. I like when I get to see students grow and achieve their goals. 

  • Maria Lorden

    school secretary

    I joined St. John Vianney School as the new Administrative Assistant starting in August 2019.  I'd been looking to make a career change after 20+ years in the banking industry and feel this would be a wonderful opportunity for me to grow personally and professionally.   I am originally from West Seneca but live in Hamburg now with my husband and two sons. I have several years experience in active involvement with my son's PTA and volunteering in class when needed. In my own experience, I value the parent-teacher relationship and know how important that relationship is in creating a positive experience for students.
