Biography
Mary-Ellen Lavigne joined the AVS senior leadership team as Director of Advancement following 5 years as an advancement office leader at Phillips Brooks School in Menlo Park – most recently serving as their Director of Advancement. Prior to her move to the Bay Area, Mary-Ellen led the communications office at St. James' Episcopal School in Los Angeles and served on the faculty at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Conn. Mary-Ellen is passionate about working in independent schools, having had a life-changing high school experience, after which she studied theater and mathematics at Wesleyan University. She and her wife Lauren live in Hayward with their son Jean Luc. In her spare time, Mary-Ellen enjoys games of all kinds (board, role-playing, and video alike), rocking the karaoke microphone (especially for a packed house), and embracing her inner nerd by learning whenever she can – about whatever she can!
