Prior to August, Justine developed turnaround organizational consulting services for social service agencies across New York State, and developed an internal innovation network for one of NYC’s largest behavioral health organizations.

Justine is passionate about the role that leaders can play in helping companies stay future-competitive and fully realize their organizational potential.
