Assemblyman Edward Braunstein and Councilman Barry Grodenchik honored former Samuel Field Y executive director and CEO Jeri Mendelsohn, who retired in June.
“It was a pleasure attending Samuel Field Y’s annual Autism Awareness Event at the Bay Terrace Pool and Tennis Club,” said Braunstein. “Thank you to Jeri Mendelsohn for her decades of dedication and service to seniors and people with disabilities.”
Prior to her appointment as CEO, Mendelsohn spent 12 years as Samuel Field Y’s associate executive director for social service programs. She has had over 30 years of experience in the development and implementation of programs and services for people with disabilities.
She also serves as co-chair of the UJA-Federation of New York’s Task Force on People with Disabilities.
