    As a lifelong resident of Middle Island, New York, Cindy has tirelessly served her community not only as a licensed funeral director but also as a religious education instructor at St. Frances Cabrini Roman Catholic Church and as the past secretary of the Longwood PTA. Currently Cindy serves as president of the Nassau-Suffolk Funeral Directors Association, where she remains dedicated to ensuring ethical business practices are upheld in the funeral profession.

    Cindy’s pastimes are anything family-oriented, including camping, fishing and vacations with her husband and daughter. When she finally takes time for herself, she can be found on the beach, getting lost in a good book.
