Justine Sweeney joined Breastcancer.org in November 2012 as operations assistant, working with the administrative and development departments to keep daily operations running smoothly. She processes all incoming donations and acknowledgement letters, and generates development reports.
Justine graduated from Cabrini College in 2010 with a BA in political science and decided to pursue work in the nonprofit sphere. Prior to Breastcancer.org, she worked as a development associate at Elwyn, a human services organization that offers programs for individuals with diverse challenges. She also worked as a business financial sales assistant and field hockey coach throughout college.
As the oldest of four girls and the daughter of an oncology nurse, women’s health has always one of Justine’s interests. “It’s so inspiring and motivating to work at an organization where every staff member is so passionate about its mission,” she says.
Away from the office, Justine stays active and is passionate about health and fitness, playing the piano, and spending time with her sisters.
