Leadership Team

Jonathon Parker graduated with a degree in mathematics of finance & risk management in 2016. While in school he participated in the Michigan Equestrian Team, Cur, and Wolverine Capital Investments. He currently works as a forecast analyst at Comfort Research. For Jonathan, "A liberal arts education not only expands my knowledge of the world, but it also provides me the skill to push reasoning further. I have always been an advocate for continuous improvement. In fact, sociologist Vilfredo Pareto says that "abstractions are parts common to certain facts," and what this means is that our learning (abstractions of the world) are leading us toward the understanding/solutions (facts) that the world needs. I believe LSA really upholds this belief. The world needs more victors".
