Stefanie began her professional commitment to youth in foster care shortly after law school while living in Chicago, IL as a volunteer with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program of Cook County. Relocating to her hometown, CASA stuck with Stefanie and she became the Director of the Onondaga CASA program.
In 2019, Onondaga CASA and Stefanie found a home with AccessCNY, Inc. Since then, Stefanie has had the pleasure of continuing to advocate for foster youth while also providing legal support to the exceptional AccessCNY programs and administration serving as a member of the Executive Team.
Stefanie is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of an agency that empowers individuals to achieve their goals and live their best life.
Q&A with Stefanie
Q: What makes AccessCNY’s mission important to you?
A: Empowering individuals speaks to who we are as much as it speaks to what services we provide. Everyone gets to use their strengths to collaborate and help people achieve their goals. Everyone deserves a shot at their own happiness and I love that I get to help that happen!
