Connie is a graduate of St. John’s Law School (1997). Employed as a Senior Attorney in the Construction Litigation Group at PEPPER HAMILTON LLP, Connie also serves as a District Leader Volunteer for The Humane Society of the United States in New York’s 13th Congressional District. A resident of Inwood, Connie has been extensively involved in community service initiatives over the past decade including the NYC Department of Homeless Services’ Homeless Outreach Population Estimate process; Inwood Canoe Club; The Doe Fund; Habitat for Humanity/Project Hope for Hurricane Katrina (New Orleans), and the Inwood Fire Relief Committee (after the 207th Street Fire of 1/3/12) Connie has been a member of Inwood Community Services since 2012.
As an IRS 501 (c)(3) free standing community-based and community-guided not-for-profit organization in the heart of Inwood, ICS has survived financially over the past 36+ years through essentially three sources of revenue:
- Government contracts attained through rigorous RFP (Request for Proposal) processes
- Medicaid, Medicare and insurance fees for ICS's professionally-licensed clinical services
- The generosity of community residents and other ICS supporters
This last category of support enables ICS to enhance certain of its programs and activities and also offset the costs of what have become ICS traditions: the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Fund and the annual ICS Christmas Holiday Toy Drive.
