Commmunity Service


I served on the Board of Trustees of Furniture Assist, Inc., a non-profit corporation which meets needs for household items of working families in Northern New Jersey from Summer 2010-December 2012 and remained involved as a volunteer through 2017.

I am currently involved in an effort to provide a caring compassionate community, including housing, jobs, and healthcare, and a sense of belonging, for young women aging out of the foster care system.
