The Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern NY
While she was still a student at The College of Saint Rose, Jeannine began working at the Epilepsy Association of the Capital District in 1987, where she discovered her passion for working with the organization. In 1991, just months after her graduation, she rose to her current position as Executive Director, managing the work of the organization throughout 22 counties in northeastern New York including agency oversight and administration, advocacy, educational outreach, and support.
Jeannine has served on the Board of Directors of Women in Development and on the Epilepsy Foundation National Strategic Planning Committee. She is a member of the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber’s Women’s Business Council, and the Empire State Society of Association Executives, where she is a member of the Association Leadership Academy Class of 2012.
Jeannine was a grateful recipient of a scholarship to The College of Saint Rose. She praises the professors at The College of Saint Rose who brought real world experiences into her business curriculum as truly preparing her for the career she entered shortly after graduation.
