Andy Swallow ’20, MSOL. President & CEO, Bethesda Foundation

“It was such a rewarding experience. I was learning with some incredible leaders through the MSOL cohort at TriHealth, but I was also in classes with other professionals from a variety of industries, while I was taking some of my courses on campus. I’m also grateful for the program directors going above and beyond to offer me the flexibility I needed to complete the program. It was a true testament to how much the Mount values its students and supports their needs.”
