In 2011, she assumed the role of Sector Head for Social Services, developing relationships with Social Service agencies throughout NYC.

In April 2014, after a six-month hiatus, she rejoined NESC with incoming NESC President – Jane Greenman, Esq. Together, they will continue the work on the Board authorized Strategic Planning Task Force.
“Hurricane Sandy, sequestration in Washington D.C. and the Medicaid redesign have had enormous direct impact on human services agencies and, indirectly, affected all nonprofits, and the consequences continue to linger,” Ms. Finn said. “I am totally committed to the NESC mission of mobilizing professionals and executives to assist nonprofit organizations in these challenging economic times. Our consultants are our most valuable asset.”
