Founder, Head Instructor
Shay comes from a family of professors, teachers, and educational consultants. She grew up surrounded by discussions and debates regarding education philosophy and the most innovative and effective teaching methods.
Shay pursued a background in both the liberal arts and the natural sciences, graduating with a degree in Molecular Genetics from the University of Rochester. In 2009, after earning admission to medical school, she decided to devote herself to building her vision for education instead: Altiora.
Shay is committed to staying active in all of Altiora’s operations, and she personally takes on students each year. Above all, she wants to make sure that Altiora retains the personal touch that has been the cornerstone of its success, and she is always available to address any questions and special requests.
