When St. Mary’s Academy alumna Caprice Neely set out to launch a new shoe company, it never occurred to her that she could not. “I think that’s what St. Mary’s taught me,” she shares “that anything I imagined doing is possible.” She adds, “We were taught and encouraged to have freedom and diversity of thought and to ask questions. I learned that my voice and ideas mattered.” It was with this mentality that Caprice left her longtime position as a designer at Under Armor to launch not just a new shoe company, but a new shoe category: BALA, premium footwear for nurses.

Here are some of the few service projects the Service team has planned for this holiday season.
