Maggie Koerner began working as the Chief Financial Officer at Columbus Academy in 1994. As C.F.O., Maggie uses analytical and quantitative problem-solving skills and also gets to interact with faculty, staff, parents and students, all areas of work she loves. Born in New Jersey, Maggie moved to Central Ohio when she was nine-years-old and has lived here ever since. Outside of work, Maggie enjoys spending time with her family, projects around the house such as cleaning and gardening, as well as solving crossword puzzles. Maggie and her husband, Jim, have two sons who graduated from CA, the oldest, Jimmy ’11 who works for a logistics firm in Chicago, Ill., and Gavin ’14, who graduated from Otterbein University in 2019 with a degree in Systems Engineering.

Maggie’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy

“I love that we pursue such a valuable mission of preparing students to be productive adults in the future. That makes every day meaningful.”

If you could take a class taught by anyone, who would the teacher be and why?

I would love to have a class taught by Leonardo Da Vinci because he was such a Renaissance Man.  It would be interesting to hear him speak about both the artistic and analytical aspects of the world, and to try to understand how he blended these areas in his work.”

Favorite food

“Anything sweet with strawberries!”
