Mark brings more than 10 years of experience in operations management in the health services industry to his post at Acceleration Academies. He oversees the operational, administrative, Human Resources, marketing and communications divisions of the firm.

Prior to joining Acceleration Academies, Mark was with the American Hospital Association where he served as the Communications Chief for a national hospital efficacy initiative aimed at health care quality improvement. With a deep background in Public Health, Mark has a strong interest in public education and kids from poverty and under-served circumstances. His commitment to improving access to quality education for children across the country, regardless of socioeconomic ability, makes him a valuable asset to the Acceleration Academies team.

Mark feels very fortunate to serve in a position that so directly impacts the lives of the voiceless, those who have fallen off the path of earning a high school diploma. He strongly believes everyone deserves the chance at a quality education.
