After serving as Millbrook’s First Lady for fourteen years, Mrs. Casertano joined the faculty in the summer of 2004 as interim Associate Director of Development and then a year later was appointed Associate Director of Admission and Director of Financial Aid. Having been involved in development and admissions at several schools since 1979 (Loomis Chaffee, The Gunnery, and Indian Mountain School, where she served as director of development for eight years), she brings a wealth of experience to her work at Millbrook. Not only has Mrs. Casertano “done everything” in an educational setting during the past thirty plus years – from teaching to producing publications to running a dormitory to fundraising – she has found time to volunteer for her alma maters, Albany Academy for Girls and Smith College.
In addition to her responsibilities in the admission and financial aid offices, she is an advisor to three students and a hostess for many events held for students, parents, alumni, and trustees at Pulling House, the Headmaster’s residence. She and her husband, Drew, have three grown boys: Alex, Tyler, and Will. She is an avid lacrosse fan and tennis enthusiast.
