Welcome to NYSPA Foundation
As I begin my first year at NYSPA, I welcome both the opportunity and the challenge of serving as the Executive Director of the organization and of the foundation. I have a deep commitment and appreciation toward the organization’s mission of to advance the science and practice of psychology as a means of promoting human welfare.
This year one of the major goals is to develop a new operational framework that supports our mission. This goal will play an instrumental role in shaping the future of the NYSPA Foundation. Even as our industry faces new challenges, we plan to continue to grow and expand the NYSPA Foundation.
I humbly accept my role with a strong sense of determination to exceed all of our goals. I know that we can be successful if we apply our resources and talents to the task at hand. We have a great deal of work ahead, and you can expect that I will rely heavily on my team, board members and most importantly our members. If we have everyone’s involvement and support, surely we will succeed.
We have a tremendous responsibility as well as a unique opportunity to educate, communicate and share our knowledge with our community along with others. Working together, we can enhance the value of your profession while improving the opportunity for others.
I look forward to a wonderful year ahead.
