Joan Callahan

Joan has been with Remy Bumppo since 2008.


Joan Callahan (President) (she/her) was a school nurse with the Sacred Heart Schools in Chicago who recently retired. She resides with her husband, Michael Callahan, in the South Loop and SW Michigan. She was an English/Theater major in college and taught theater at a private high school on the city’s southside in the 70s’. She worked with the Blackhawk Restaurants as manager and educator, attained a Masters in Social Work and then worked as parish social worker at St. Clements in Chicago before staying home to raise their three children. She returned to school to get her RN and has combined all those previous careers to work as a school nurse. Theater has always been close to her heart and spirit. Thankfully Chicago provides well for this. Remy Bumppo has always been a favorite and appeals for its attention to language and complex ideas and being part of the board seems a perfect way to give greater support to Remy and Chicago theater.
