Maureen Brady Atinsky’s passion for volunteerism was sparked as a child watching her mother make a difference in North Salem, NY.  “She would take my three sisters and me to political fundraisers, local shelters and an organization dedicated to helping children with life-threatening diseases. These experiences instilled in me a sense of giving back, a sense that I was part of something bigger than myself.”


As a mom of three girls, I do the same things as my mother did with me- teaching by example. My girls and I are active in a number of organizations that address climate change, education, homelessness, healthcare and animals. My ability to listen and my willingness to compromise are what help me motivate people and obtain results. 


Named an Outstanding Volunteer in 2012, from the Junior League of the City of New York, Maureen was commended for implementing positive change, launching new committees, and raising critical funds for community partners.


Maureen is currently the board chair of CELF- Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation.  CELF’s mission is to establish sustainability as an integral part of every child’s K-12 learning experience. Primarily focused in the Tri-State area, through her connections, Maureen secured funding to launch the program in Houston, Texas.

Maureen’s former professional career has included positions at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom,, Hudson Highland Recruiting and Prodigy Recruiting. These days she can be found volunteering at PS 6 & The Hewitt School, or working at CELF & the NYJL.

Maureen resides in Manhattan with her husband Lawrence and three daughters.
