Mindy Schefen: Director of Finance and Operations
Mindy Schefen is the new Director of Finance and Operations at City and Country School. She is excited to be working as a part of our community. “The sense of community is lovely and everyone that I have met thus far has been friendly, warm and welcoming.”
Mindy, as Director of Finance and Operations, manages a lot of the “behind-the-scenes” work that students shouldn’t have to worry about. “There’s also a ton of things that go into making sure that things go smoothly for you that you may not even notice, from purchasing lunch ingredients, to construction projects, to cleaning. My job is to help make sure that those things stay invisible for you, and you don’t have to worry about it so that you can concentrate on learning, making friends and enjoying every day at City and Country.”
This is not Mindy’s first time working at a job like this. She has also worked at Saint Ann’s for 7 years, and for 4 of those years, she was their CFO (Chief Financial Officer). “My husband served on a committee at City and Country and for years I heard wonderful things about this school and when I learned that the school was looking for a new Director of Finance and Operations, I decided to throw my hat in the ring.”
When asked about what she likes to do in her free time, Mindy replied, “I’m a mom. I love to spend time with my kids.” Mindy’s eldest daughter is getting married soon. Mindy also likes to travel and explore the city.
Mindy has known about C&C for a while now and is very grateful to be working with the students and staff.
