Since its founding in 1923, the Junior League of Greater New Haven has sought to effect positive change in the Greater New Haven community by promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and supporting the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. As the League prepares for its Centennial Anniversary, we celebrate our members and share their incredible stories, recognizing how each individual story makes up that of the League as a whole.


Amy C. joined the Junior League of Greater New Haven in 2018 and took the leap to leadership this year. Amy is an institutional investor by trade who also enjoys playing tennis, traveling, and quality time with her husband and two dogs. She loves working with numbers, so she was happy to become the League’s Finance Director for the 2021-22 League Year.

She has learned a lot as Finance Director, including what it takes to run a nonprofit like the League, how the League is managed, and gained insight into other executive board positions within the League. Amy says, “what has truly been incredible is the team of other board members who have been so willing to help me out along the way!”

Amy values her experience with JLGNH for connecting her to a community of women who share a common mission, sense of community, and spirit of voluntarism. “We all have different backgrounds,” she says, “but we’re motivated to give back to others.” Her favorite community project shows that sense of community in action -- with New Haven Reads, where after learning about the literacy project, the League collected over 120 books during a drive benefiting the organization. “It was wonderful to be part of the team that put that effort together from start to finish.”
