As an alum of the Mount, receiving both his Bachelor and his Master degrees, Matt has had the opportunity to give back to the institution that has provided him with so much. He believes that when we find things we are passionate about, we find the means to see them through. Education has provided him an opportunity to work in a role that gives his life a purpose greater than a paycheck. “After spending many years in the corporate world, I’m thrilled to work towards such an impactful and powerful mission. At the end of the day, I can lay my head down knowing I have made a meaningful, positive difference in the lives of others”. Matt knows personally the value of degree from the Mount and is excited to work with alumni and donors.
