Why is it important for you to serve on the board?
It’s important for me to serve on the Board because this is my direct way of supporting MCS’ sustainability. Working in partnership with Corey and the other Trustees to ensure that we continue to thrive as an institution - and as a community - is sacred work to me. Serving is an act of social justice.
