Forty years ago, at the age of 29, I came to the NSCLC to advocate for the rights of low-income older adults. My mother did not understand why I would leave a large private law firm and give up the commensurate salary to work in a poverty law program. I have never once regretted that decision in all these years! However, this year will be my last as Executive Director. While I’ll be officially retiring, I will remain actively involved in the work of NSCLC and will remain dedicated to the continuing struggle to secure and protect the rights of the elderly poor. The NSCLC Board of Directors is conducting a search for a new Executive Director.
