Like all of the CCE staff, Maureen answered an ad in the paper in the fall of 2001, and as they say, the rest is history. Maureen has worked in CCE’s offices around the state and currently calls Long Island her home. Her favorite campaigns are BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag), protection of our bays, estuaries, and ocean, drinking water protection, recycling, and renewable energy. Maureen has worked on historic campaigns such as stopping the dumping of dredged material into LIS and the Stop Broadwater campaign.

She is happy to be a new mom and to work with such great colleagues.
