Cori Mykoff is the Senior Development Officer at The Posse Foundation in Boston. Posse identifies and trains incredible young leaders from urban public high schools and sends them to top colleges in cohorts of 10 (“Posses”) with full-tuition scholarships. At Posse, Cori directs local fundraising. Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Cori lives in Somerville and is a proud alumna of Emerson College. Her personal heroes include Dorothy Zbornak and Julia Sugarbaker. Cori oversaw logistics for our 200+ Young Philanthropist Conference, and watching her in action, it became clear TPC wanted this force of nature on our Team.
Marta E. Pagán-Ortiz, MS, has been engaged in philanthropy most of her life, most recently with the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston. She holds an MS in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern University and is currently at UMass Boston working on a PhD in Counseling Psychology. Her interests include the development of health technologies, mental health services in community-based settings, and interventions to reduce disparities in health. Originally from Puerto Rico, Marta now lives in East Boston with her husband. In 2012, Marta was part of TPC’s inaugural class of Young Philanthropist Fellows. Since then, she has distinguished herself in multiple leadership roles – as a Grant Review Team Captain, and co-chair of the Young Philanthropist Conference Committee. Marta has been with TPC from the start, and we are excited to take our relationship “to the next level” as we welcome her onto the Board.
