Founded in 1972, BronxWorks employs over 750 people across 34 sites. As the organization's tireless leader, she is the ultimate advocate for the 40,000 residents of the Bronx that receive services from BronxWorks.
Eileen started at BronxWorks as Assistant to the Executive Director in 1995, soon becoming Administrative Counsel and then General Counsel in 2003.

Upon the retirement of her predecessor in June 2013, she was named as the Interim Executive Director. While she continued to serve as IED, the Board appointed her to the newly-created position of Chief Operating Officer.
During Eileen's interim leadership, BronxWorks received a 2013 New York Nonprofit Excellence Award, was selected as a merit finalist in the nationwide Community Partnership Award of Mutual of America, and was named a finalist in the Brooke W. Mahoney Award for Outstanding Board Leadership, a greater New York metropolitan area award organized by VCG Governance Matters. BronxWorks was also awarded contracts to provide Affordable Care Act Navigator services and operate St. Mary's and the Classic Community Center that serves three NYCHA complexes in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. In 2015 Eileen was recognized by El Diario Magazine ( click here for story) and also received the the 2015 Business Law & Leadership Award from the Lawyers Alliance of New York (press release).
A graduate of Cardinal Spellman High School, Eileen earned a B.S. from Pace University, a J.D. from the Northeastern University School of Law, and is a member of the New York State Bar Association. She is a board member of the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, Human Services Council, the Lawyers Alliance for New York and serves on the Advisory Committee of the Center for Bronx Non-Profits.
