Meet Our Team

Meet the Advancement Team

Over the past few months, The Knox Advancement Team has undergone some impressive improvements to better serve its fundraising goals and help our Home Beside the Shore reach new heights. Fresh new energy and sound leadership are at the helm, and you will be seeing many innovative approaches to growing our programs. Please meet our new and improved team. Photographed from left to right, Danielle Taylor has been promoted from Advancement Assistant to the new position of Director of Operations for Advancement and Admissions, newly appointed Kristen Matera joins the Knox team as Advancement Associate, Head of School Kristen Tillona-Baker has assumed a more hands-on leadership role to guide the team towards a new level of success, and Anna DeRosa has been promoted to Associate Director of Admissions and Advancement, and is strongly leading efforts to grow enrollment and expand our outreach within local and international communities.

We wish these ladies well in their efforts and strongly encourage our Knox constituents to stop by the campus to meet the new team.
