M. R. began her career in 2003 with Big Picture Learning as the Business Manager for The Met Center, in Providence, RI, where she spent five years in budget and facilities management while the school grew from 120 to over 800 students; including the addition of the East Bay Met School in Newport, RI, later named for Paul W.

M.

After having lived in Rhode Island for 31 years, M. R. returned to her home in York, PA in 2008, where she grew up; loving being near her family again, while still working hard to help provide better opportunities for youth to succeed in high school and in life.
