Dr. Margaret Moodian is an associate professor at University of Massachusetts Global. She also sits on the board of the Waldorf-inspired Journey School in Aliso Viejo, CA. The University of Massachusetts Global selected Dr. Moodian to speak about a pen pal program she started with TIAS ARMS at their 2021 TEDx conference. Since her TED Talk, the program has expanded thanks to the help of Ambassador Eric Bost, who serves on our Advisory Board. Pepperdine University selected her as an inaugural 40 Under 40 honoree in 2016, and the Chapman University Delta Gammas presented her with an Outstanding Alumnus award in 2019. Margaret is a Delta Gamma PRO, which means she speaks to Delta Gammas and other members of the Greek community around the country about topics such as leadership and self-esteem. Margaret earned a doctorate degree in education and a master’s degree in psychology from Pepperdine University, and a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Chapman University. Her dissertation focuses on the leadership traits of female Fortune 1,000 board members. She lives with her husband, Dr. Michael (Mike) Moodian, son Mikey, and pets in Rancho Mission Viejo, CA.
