MCS Welcomes New Advancement and Kitchen Staff

Friday, December 1, 2017

Manhattan Country School is happy to announce three additions to its staff.  

Campaign Coordinator

Emily Perry joins MCS in the new position of campaign coordinator. She comes from The Brearley School, where she worked in the Office of Equity and Community Engagement. Prior to joining the administrative team at Brearley, Emily was a head teacher at Peartree Preschool and Needham Children’s Center and an assistant teacher at Hunnewell Elementary School. Emily earned a master's degree in teaching from Smith College, where she was a classmate of Alaina Daniels, our Upper School science teacher.  

Kitchen Assistant

Romina Dedvukaj is MCS' new kitchen assistant. She will be helping with lunch preparation, distribution, dishwashing and cleaning. Romina moved to the United States from Koplik, Romania, a small town where most of her family still lives, two years ago when she and her husband were married. Her father, who was a chef, taught her to cook. MCS is already benefiting from her strong work ethic, attention to detail and good-natured personality. 


Ashley Ross, MCS' baker-in-training, comes from Hot Bread Kitchen's Bakers-in-Training Program. Ashley grew up in Queens and now lives in Harlem with her husband and daughter. She will be working part-time, assisting with the Afterschool program (especially the wildly popular baking class) and helping prepare the baked goods for Friday snack.

Please join us in welcoming Emily, Romina and Ashley to the MCS community!
