A Message from Anthony Barbuto, Executive Director, Development and Alumni Relations:

quoteWe are excited to welcome Emily Archibald as our new Assistant Director for the Annual Fund. Emily received a BA in Anthropology from Wesleyan University and spent four years working in PR and marketing before moving to nonprofit fundraising. For the past five years, she has worked at Rediscovery, Inc. a small nonprofit in Waltham that helps homeless youth and youth aging out of foster care to become independent adults. Emily is originally from Virginia, though she lived for a year in Turkey during high school and a semester in Indonesia while in college. She now lives in Needham.quote
