“I am committed to safeguarding the legacy of excellence with which Mount Madonna was founded. I am committed to developing new opportunities to strengthen its academic program, enhance the student experience, and increase enrollment, diversity and equity on campus.
"I am drawn to MMS because it instills an unquenchable passion for learning. The school fosters curiosity in students, challenges them to dig deep and question ideas, and encourages intellectual risk-taking. The mission of great schools demand more than academic excellence; great schools are committed to developing compassionate individuals who strive to improve their communities and the world.”
