Lorrie J. Blitch, Owner at Magellan Christian Academy, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in education administration.

Following 20 years of notable commander service in the U.S. military, Ms. Blitch went on to work as a medical and legal consultant from 1995 to 2000. Through some of her work in the educational setting, she saw indoctrination occurring rather than academia. Since her own education in the 1960s, she was shocked to discover how it had morphed into something she believed to be completely dysfunctional. From these experiences, Ms. Blitch decided to get back to traditional academic learning by spearheading her own institution.

In 1999, Ms. Blitch opened the Magellan Christian Academies, a children’s daycare center, in Mesa, Arizona and varying locations nationwide. With a focus on building solid spiritual, emotional and organizational foundations, she believes these points are essential in order for children to grow into successful adults. Finding great success in the local community, the Magellan Christian Academy has been named within the Top Three Childcare Centers in Mesa and Best Preschool in Jacksonville, Florida, among similar accolades. Additionally, in 2010, it was honored by the Mayor’s Office with the Proclamation of Magellan Day in Jacksonville. Ms. Blitch lectures nationally and internationally on nursing and education topics, including academia’s indoctrination establishments and the return to traditional academic learning.

To attest to her success, Ms. Blitch achieved a Master of Science from South University in 2012. Likewise, she is also a registered nurse and a member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. Reflecting on her career trajectory, Ms. Blitch attributes her success to focus and discipline. Citing her military background for her strong-willed nature, she is proud of her ability to set, plan and achieve her goals. With this sentiment, she is also the author of “Sapphire: A Life That Almost Wasn’t.” In the coming years, Ms. Blitch plans to spearhead a school in Phoenix, Arizona, create her book into a children’s cartoon and finish writing her book on the coronavirus.
