Board Member, Treasurer

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE?

Real Estate Finance and Banking

WHY ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH SENIORLAW CENTER?

I have become inspired by the commitment of the legal community in Philadelphia to find ways to provide legal support to elderly members of the community. The commitment is even more impressive given the fact the SLC dedicates its services to help those whose financial resources are limited. In these days of remarkable income discrepancies between many segments of our community, the time, energy and resources contributed are noble, generous and needed.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR BOARD MEMBERSHIP / LEADERSHIP?

Days of Service in August 2017 when I shadowed various members of the SLC staff as they conducted normal business on behalf of SLC clients and other seniors. The extremely high level of competence and dedication to the individuals being served to motivate me in a much different way to the mission of the organization. Real people took the place of statistics that we see, as Board members, on a monthly basis.

OTHER WAYS YOU SERVE AS A VOLUNTEER FOR SLC?

Special projects on an “as needed” basis

WHY DO YOU THINK OTHERS SHOULD SUPPORT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Compassion for others, regardless of their economic or age circumstances, benefits all of us. It enables the entire community and make Philadelphia a much better place to live.
