Thank You For Visiting
Associate Professor Elissa O’keefe retires
To all the beautiful women of Junic and your precious families, the day has come.
I will be retiring to spend more time with my new grandson Archer and the rest of my family.
Thank you for sharing your lives with me and trusting us at Junic to care for you. I have been truly humbled to have been a part of your journey and will miss you all greatly.
I feel so proud to have helped establish a safe, supportive, and empowering place for women to come to for help and guidance and know that I leave you stronger than I found you and in very capable hands.
Trust yourself and follow your dreams.
