Miranda, better known as MJ, is a 2002 Alumna of HOBY Maine and a new member of our volunteer team. She joined the curriculum development team last Fall and just recently agreed to take on the role of Alumni Advisor for 2015!
MJ works as a Learning Design & Development Specialist for Delhaize (parent company for Hannaford Supermarkets) by day and a DJ by night!
When asked why she wanted to volunteer with HOBY Maine, MJ said: "I think we can all lead from where we are, where ever we are.. There is no need to wait- you have power and influence beyond measure! High School doesn't always feel like the "best years of your life," and I know what I learned at HOBY in 2002 helped me excel in "the best of times and the worst of times." (If you find me while you are at HOBY and you can name the book I pulled that from, I'll give you a prize). Mostly, let's be honest, I really like to dance- and there is a lot of that at HOBY. You have been warned.
MJ's leadership quote is:
"I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches." - Alice Roosevelt Longworth
