After taking time off from her career to be a stay-at-home mom, Miriam Shapira ’97 is the new executive assistant to the head of external relations.
Shapira said that the excitement of seeing her two children head off to school has reignited her passion for education and inspired her to return to her alma mater.
As the executive assistant to the head of external relations, she will help with event planning and scheduling.
Shapira majored in comparative literature at Brown University and then earned her master’s degree in teaching from Pace University. After getting her law degree from University of California, San Francisco Hastings Law School, she worked as a corporate attorney for Warner Brothers.
“I feel really lucky,” Shapira said. “I am learning a lot just by being here.”
