School Board profile – Branden Emmerson
I have been a general member on the Southern Montessori Board for almost 2 years and have been spending this time learning a great deal about the “inner workings” of our school. I have gained an appreciation that it is only through a huge amount of work and collaboration that such an incredible school can exist.
I am married to Michelle, a local GP, and we have three children currently enrolled in Southern Montessori, ranging from Preschool to Year 4. I have seen them grow tremendously during this time, and look forward to the amazing opportunities that await them with the new middle school. Look out for an exciting announcement soon!
My profession by day is as a doctor (anaesthetist) working with medSTAR, SA’s Emergency Medical Retrieval Service. You may recognise us on the road dressed in red as part of an SA Ambulance crew, in the air in a red Motor Accident Commission helicopter, or somewhere in rural SA on a Royal Flying Doctor Service plane.
My previous board experience includes having been president of a Homeowners Association in San Diego and president of a volunteer ambulance group in New York City. Prior to becoming a doctor, I ran a small IT company in San Diego providing network development, infrastructure, and security services to small and medium sized businesses.
I have already met many of you over the last six years but I have many more to meet. Please feel free to come up and say hi any time. Have a fantastic summer, and see you next year!
