Alumni in Action: Supporting and Empowering Nonprofits in New York City

Jennifer Geiling (EMPA) left her job as a corporate lawyer to start a nonprofit for adults with developmental disabilities. She wanted to make a greater impact on the nonprofit sector, so she decided to attend NYU Wagner. As a graduate of the EMPA program, Geiling now serves as Executive Director of the Nonprofit Resiliency Committee in the New York City Mayor's Office, where she works to strengthen relationships between the city and its human service providers.
