Our Talent Team

We’re working together to help find May Institute employees and our future co-workers! 


Meet Jane Shamaly
Senior Director of Talent Aquisition

I’ve been leading Talent Acquisition Teams, HR Systems Teams and Learning and Development Teams for most of my career. I’ve spent the bulk of my career working for Fortune 300 companies and have had opportunities to staff major environmental clean-up efforts, as well as major food distribution warehouse openings. I’m thrilled to be able to bring my experiences to May Institute in order to help hire caring and compassionate team members. Our staff do the most aMAYzing work; assisting individuals lead the fullest, most independent lives that they can.

Feel free to reach out to me at jshamaly@mayinstitute.org

Meet Stacy Leger
Talent Aquisition Manager

I started working in Talent Acquisition and Recruiting 6 years ago after a career change from interior design. I am passionate about working with people and helping them achieve their career goals.

My role at May Institute is focused on program and people development. I oversee our recruiting teams for our Randolph, Brockton, and Wilmington schools and residential programs, as well as our HSCB teams. I am also passionate about personal and career development and have had a focus on working with our team to build out our Journey to aMAYzing Manager (JAMM) management training program along with college internship programs which focus on developing practical skills for the world of work.

I am also a member of our Diversity and Inclusion council, and in my free time I enjoy golfing, reading, attempting to garden, and I am kept busy by my 3 and 6-year-old daughters!

Senior Talent Aquisition Specialist

I have been with the Talent Acquisition Team at May Institute since 2017. Prior to working at the May, I started my career working in Human Resources and Recruiting for non-profits and healthcare firms. I currently recruit for Adult Services – Eastern Mass and my past experience recruiting for children’s services, home-school-center based, and HR at May Institute has helped develop me into a well-rounded senior recruiter.

Meet Matt Foley
Junior Talent Aquisition Specialist

Hi everyone, my name is Matt and I’m the junior talent acquisition specialist on the May Institute recruiting team! My career at the May began at the Randolph school where I was a summer intern. I learned a lot about the school and the field during my internship and now recruit people to provide the best possible teaching and care for children at the May. My main responsibilities are hiring for the Randolph Residences and Brockton Traumatic Brain Injury School and Residences. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my cat, traveling, and watching TV shows like Desperate Housewives.

Meet Jenna Palin
Talent Aquisition Specialist

Hi, Jenna Palin here! I’m the Talent Acquisition Specialist for the May Institute Schools in Randolph and Wilmington, MA, and love working with the best and brightest in special education and ABA to bring top-notch services to our students. I have a diverse background in talent acquisition, career coaching, and training. Now, I work for May Institute recruiting for any open positions within our schools. I feel so lucky to engage with so many qualified and kind-hearted individuals that positively impact our students’ lives on a daily basis with diligence, positivity, humor, and teamwork. In my free time, you can find me throwing a frisbee with my son, running marathons (or Falmouth Road Race for May Institute!), playing music with my band, cooking new vegan recipes, or enjoying a brisk hike or trail run in the Blue Hills Reservation (only a 5 minute drive from the Randolph School).

I’m always looking for new places or foods to try- send me your best recipe or hiking recommendations to jpalin@mayinstitute.org
