ABOUT TUFT: “During the search process, what I valued the most while working with Tuft Associate Mary McMahon is how thorough she is at every step and how knowledgeable about what ASSP was looking for in this position. Mary also understood my background and how my skills and experience would fit—and contribute to—an organization like ASSP. I believe that Tuft opens doors that are not otherwise readily available.”
