    When she’s not working, you can catch Cindy practicing her karate moves (wax on, wax off). But try not to get on her bad side; holding a second-degree black belt, Cindy can throw a pretty mean punch! As a board member, Cindy hopes to help half Helen increase its organizational capacity so it can provide services to all children who need care. Cindy brings invaluable knowledge and experience to half Helen, having served previously on other nonprofit governing bodies, such as the NYOS Charter School Governing Council and the First United Methodist Church Board of Trustees.
