Ava Matthias, Dana Court Learning Center 

Ava Matthias is a Waltham resident and became the director of the Dana Court Learning Center in 2013. She studied Business Administration at Newbury College, and she has been involved in a variety of political and charitable organizations in Massachusetts for more than 30 years. She is a proud mother and grandmother.

“This job means the world to me. I have always been committed to giving back to my community as much as possible. For years I was dedicated to Boston, and after moving to Waltham 12 years ago, I eventually found the right spot at Dana Court. Being part of a dedicated group that is making a positive difference in the lives of the children we serve has been the perfect fit for me. I love the children of Dana Court.”
