“I firmly believe that access to a quality education, is a true game-changer in one’s life. I have had the privilege of experiencing firsthand the transformational impact of a Boston Arts Academy education, as my niece Cady Malkemes graduated as salutatorian of her class in 2021. Having this professional opportunity to join the Boston Arts Academy Foundation as their new Vice President of Philanthropy is truly an honor as I look forward to raising the necessary funds to provide Boston’s best and brightest youth with access to a high quality arts-intensive education.”
