Staff Spotlight

This month's Staff Spotlight features Mary-Therese Courtade.

Name: Mary-Therese Courtade (everyone calls me MT)

Position: Director of Enrollment and Quality Assurance

Started with BBBSMI: September 18, 2006

Grew up in: Dearborn Heights, MI

Favorite part about working for BBBS: That we’re all so dedicated to and passionate about our mission, and that we get to help change children’s lives for the better, forever. I started out as an Enrollment and Matching Specialist nearly 11 years ago and have met so many amazing parents, children and volunteers! It’s an honor to walk alongside them.

Interests: I take after my dad in that I’m a “news junkie” (he was a reporter/editor at The Detroit News for his entire career) and I enjoy bird watching (he introduced me to it). Other interests/passions include nature/environment, faith (Catholic/Christian), cats (and dogs, but I’m not home enough to have one), horses, cooking, watching sports (football, hockey and baseball), music, singing and crochet.

Fun fact about you: I am FINALLY learning to play the piano!

Words I live by: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

Thanks, MT, for changing lives with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
