Greg graduated from Boston College with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Hispanic Studies and he currently works in Wealth Management in Boston. His interest in non-profit organizations piqued after spending two summers interning with the African Community Education Program (ACE) in Worcester, MA. With ACE, Greg witnessed how investing time and effort in people could bring about positive impacts in their lives and his own. He learned valuable skills about the daily operations of a non-profit that he now brings to MFM.
