Liana Marks Takes Helm as Manager for Whole Children and Whole Selves

NORTHAMPTON — Whole Children and Milestones, a Northampton-based after-school and weekend enrichment center for people with disabilities, has named Liana Marks as its new manager. With eight years of service as a team member, Marks brings a wealth of experience and a passion for fostering inclusion and creativity within the community.

Throughout her tenure at Whole Children and Milestones, Marks has contributed her artistic and creative talents to numerous classes, as well as in the Milestones day program, serving adults. Marks has also been a key member of the Whole Selves curriculum-development team that teaches social skills and sex education to students with disabilities.

Having earned her undergraduate degree in special education from Hampshire College with a focus on art education and inclusion, Marks’ educational background aligns seamlessly with the organization’s mission. “After being a teacher here for so many years, I’m excited to take on the role of manager,” she said. “I can’t wait to keep growing with this special and unique community.”

As the organization continues to expand and innovate in its mission to support individuals with disabilities, Marks’s vision and dedication will contribute to the ongoing success of the programs. Whole Children and Milestones are programs of Pathlight, a leading local provider of services for people with disabilities.

“We’re excited about the future and the positive impact Liana will have in steering Whole Children and Whole Selves in the coming years,” said Carrie McGee, Whole Children founder and director. “Her passion for our community is palpable, and we look forward to the continued growth under her leadership.”
