Mark comes to Santa Clara Unified with more than ten years of experience in public education in California and, prior to that, seven years of experience in Ohio public schools. He is currently employed by San Marcos Unified School District as the assistant superintendent of business services.
Mark has served in a progression of roles, including treasurer/chief financial officer, controller, assistant superintendent of administrative services, and assistant superintendent of business services. In addition to his work experience in increasingly responsible K-12 education operational leadership positions, he earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting as well as a master’s degree in education with an emphasis on school business leadership.
