In addition to uncovering market needs and lending his results-tuned consulting ear, Mark is responsible for managing daily operations, prioritizing product development, allocating resources, and ordering the coffee. Luckily, he’s a good multi-tasker. Mark has helped assemble a team that values agility and innovation and operates under the golden rule of treating everyone as you want to be treated. He holds a B.S. in finance and management from Houghton College, and has 10+ years of experience as a digital project manager and entrepreneur.

A Look Inside Our Classrooms

CVCA’s AP English Language and Composition class recently read a short selection from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ #1 New York Times bestseller, Between the World and Me. Mrs. Meszaros shared: “This thought-provoking work that won the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfiction always leads to a discussion on what it is like to grow up as a person of color in America. Because of this, I love to bring in a variety of faculty and staff members who can speak to their own experiences on the subject. It is a blessing to have brothers and sisters in the Lord share their heart and firsthand experiences with my students.”
