Career Advisor

Class Year of Child:2024
Occupation: Social Impact & Education
JEREMY CHRISTOPHER KOHOMBAN, Ph.D.
President and CEO, The Children’s Village

Dr. Jeremy Christopher Kohomban is the President and CEO of The Children’s Village and the President of Harlem Dowling. The Children’s Village, founded in 1851, and Harlem Dowling, founded in 1831, provide a broad continuum of residential and community-embedded programs.

Dr. Kohomban is an author, sometimes an activist, and always a pragmatic leader. He has played a lead role in the family support and residential treatment reforms that are transforming children’s care. Dr. Kohomban is driven by the belief that every child, regardless of age, deserves a family, and he is outspoken in his recognition of the social justice antecedents that drive child welfare and juvenile justice. Under his leadership, The Children’s Village, the nation’s oldest and once the largest children’s residential treatment center, has been transformed into a national model for community-embedded family support. The Children’s Village is the Gold Prize winner of the New York Community Trust-New York Magazine’s Nonprofit Excellence Awards, the US Congressional Coalition Angels in Adoption award, the Child Welfare League of America Exemplary Innovative Leadership Award and the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, Samuel Gerson Nordlinger Leadership Award.

Senators Wyden and Hatch added his name to the Congressional Record for his testimony before the US Senate Finance Committee on the need for finance reform that supports children, families and communities. When Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) became law, The Chronicle of Social Change noted that Dr. Kohomban was one of the most important off-the-Hill boosters of the FFPSA, described as the “biggest federal overhaul of foster care in decades”. City Limits magazine identified him as a leader with a “clear vision for the future” and in his book, From Pariahs to Partners, How Parents and their Allies Changed New York City’s Child Welfare System, David Tobis describes him as “one of the most parent-focused, reform-minded, and effective administrators in the field”.

Jeremy chairs the Human Services Council, is the national co-chair of the Children Need Amazing Parents (CHAMPS) campaign, and a Trustee of Save the Children.

He is a graduate of Emporia State University, KS., a Masters from Long Island University, NY., A PhD from the School for Business and Leadership at Regent University, Virginia and a LittD (Honorary Doctor of Letters) from Mercy College, New York.

Before working for Mrs. Obama, Melissa worked for then Congressman Norman Y. Mineta for seven years as his Staff Assistant and Executive Assistant before working for Senator Joseph Lieberman. Winter was Senator Lieberman’s Traveling Aide during his 2000 Vice Presidential run as well as his Director of Scheduling on his 2004 Presidential race.

She made Washington her home the day after she graduated in 1989 with a degree in art history, and has been in D.C. ever since, making public service her profession of choice, and also a core value of who she is.

https://www.nathanbarr.com
Class Year: 1995
Occupation: Arts, Communication & Media
Emmy-nominated composer Nathan Barr has received critical acclaim for his unmatched versatility, incorporating eclectic instruments from musical cultures across the world into his scores. This versatility for which he has become known is displayed most recently in Amazon Studios’/Legendary Television’s hit fantasy period drama Carnival Row, starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, Ryan Murphy’s Netflix drama Hollywood, Hulu’s hit comedy-drama The Great, starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult, FX’s Emmy-winning drama Fosse/Verdon, Blumhouse Productions’ The Hunt, directed by Craig Zobel, and Miramax/Amazon Studios’ upcoming film Uncle Frank, written and directed by Alan Ball and starring Paul Bettany.

Nathan’s recent work has earned him three nominations at the 72nd Emmy Awards, two for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music (Carnival Row and Hollywood) and one for Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Series (Hollywood). This is the second time Nathan has earned two Emmy nominations in the Main Title category in the same year.

Nathan’s hallmark adaptability has led him to scoring a diverse roster of some of television’s biggest shows, among which are all six seasons of FX’s The Americans , starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, and all seven seasons of HBO’s Emmy-winning and fan-favorite series, True Blood.

Alongside his extensive career in television, Nathan has scored more than 40 films. A frequent collaborator with gore-horror master Eli Roth, Nathan scored his early cult-classics Cabin Fever and Hostel, and in 2018 scored Roth’s family-horror film The House with a Clock in its Walls, released by Amblin Entertainment/Universal Pictures and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. Some of Nathan’s other feature scores include Blumhouse Productions’ box office hit thriller The Boy Next Door, starring Jennifer Lopez, and Amblin Entertainment’s The Turning, starring Mackenzie Davis and Finn Wolfhard.

Nathan has also made a name for himself performing many of the instruments heard on his scores, instruments from a vast collection he has built over his years in the scoring business. The gem of his collection is the 1,366-pipe Wurlitzer Theater Organ formerly housed at Fox Studios, a history-rich instrument that currently lives at Nathan's studio, Bandrika, in Tarzana, CA.

Nathan is a member of the Skidmore Class of 1995 and resides in Los Angeles.
