Prior to joining the Bergen CASA Staff, Dina served as an Advocate and Peer Coordinator which was a long time goal and something she counts as one of her most fulfilling life experiences. Due to relocating to New Jersey from Long Island several years ago Dina took a short break from her over 18 year career in the non-profit sector specializing in fundraising and special events. She held positions of Director of Development and Special Events for a variety of high profile universities and health care institutions including, New York University School of Law, Northwell Health, South Nassau Communities Hospital and Adelphi University. Dina has also worked for a private event planning firm coordinating corporate and social events. She has implemented and coordinated large scale annual fundraising efforts, managed volunteers and worked as part of several highly successful capital fundraising campaigns.
Dina volunteers as an event planner for local organizations and has planned many fundraising and youth centered events for local charities.
Dina received her B.A. from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York.
