Margo Matthews

AmeriCorps Program Empowerment Director

Margo is from Princeton, NJ and graduated in 2016 from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY with a BA in Sociology. In 2015 she spent a semester abroad in Cape Town, South Africa where she studied Multiculturalism and Human Rights. Margo’s interest in childhood development and the relationship between childhood factors and adult well-being led her to several professional work experiences as both a Case Manager for adults with serious mental illnesses and most recently, a Coordination of Care Specialist with Crisis Preparation and Recovery in Tempe, AZ. These experiences in the mental health field focused on adults, which strengthened her motivation to work in organizations geared towards children and childhood intervention, making DREAM the perfect step for her moving forward. A fun fact about Margo is that she is a dual citizen of both the United States and Canada.
