Tina’s role is to develop relationships with families on Long Island and in surrounding communities to familiarize them with The Family Center for Autism’s mission, services and opportunities. She also serves as the chairman of the Life’s WORC bullying committee, which has created a unique approach to educating, empowering, and minimizing bullying within the population that serves individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Tina’s mission to support the special needs community has spanned her entire lifetime, serving as a career for the past 20 years. With a tremendous passion for ensuring equal opportunities for all, she has served as an advocate supporting and promoting quality housing and education for children and adults with diverse learning needs and challenges.
Prior to joining Life’s WORC in 2009, Tina was involved in the community relations, public relations and event planning fields. Tina graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Long Island University, where she earned the Rosemarie Ungarelli Memorial Award. Tina’s famous tagline is “Just Ask Tina.” When she’s not tirelessly advocating for the special needs community, she enjoys spending as much time with her family as possible.
