Najette hails from a family of Italian immigrants on her mother’s side and Moroccan immigrants on her father’s. She spent most of her childhood in Boston and now calls Brooklyn home. Before joining Marcy, Najette was the Deputy Director of Development for the Si-Yo Music Society Foundation. When she's not helping The Marcy Lab School reach incredible fundraising goals or planning our next donor event, Najette can be found performing the cello (she's classically trained!) or teaching a cello class over Zoom. She is currently listening to classical music, and when not on campus, she can be found catching a concert in Manhattan with her fiancé Thomas or plotting her next trip to Italy!
