What I Love About MD
Mater Dei is a unique combination of my professional experience in publishing, finance, and non profit management. This is a special community filled with incredible people who truly care about each other and the students we are privileged to serve. While Mater Dei continues to grow and improve, we always hold true to our traditions and core values.
