Justine Quintana joined the CPE staff in October of 2015 as a Program Coordinator. Justine discovered her passion for youth development shortly after receiving her Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of New York, Hunter College. It was during this time that she engaged in case management and resiliency building with young hurricane Sandy survivors and their families. Directly following this experience, Justine was on-boarded with the YMCA of Greater New York as a Social Worker providing services to several after-school programs within urban middle and high schools. Having relocated from New York, Justine is very excited to continue working with a program that targets the academic achievement and career development of young people while promoting positive relationship building.
Justine maintains close relationships with her family and enjoys visiting them in her spare time. She also enjoys reading, watching theater, singing karaoke, indoor rock climbing, and attempting the occasional endurance challenge such as Tough Mudder.
