Currently serving as the Executive Director of a Child Advocacy organization where I started as a volunteer 20 years ago. CASA of Rochester/Monroe County is a volunteer based program with 4 staff members who have all worked very hard during the pandemic to adapt and keep our kids and families safe, advocating for the children's best interests.
Previously, I served as a hospital administrator, developing programs in Psychiatry for children and adolescents, addition services and emergency care.
Volunteer activities have focused on children and on emergency medical services, as Medic Supervisor , Director of Operations, and Board member of a volunteer ambulance corps for over 20 years. I started my career as a chemist for IBM, demonstrating that you can take skills, generalize them and move to new careers if you are willing to try.
