Administrative & Intake Assistant
Valerie Pichardo is a lifelong New Yorker with a longtime love of public service. She has worked in a variety of fields, including assisting at a nursing home, but especially values NYLPI for the opportunities it gives her to assist staff in supporting NYLPI’s client communities. As an administrative and intake assistant, Valerie is often clients’ first point of contact with the organization, assessing their needs and working to ensure that they are connected to the program that can best help them. Valerie also assists NYLPI’s pro-bono Clearinghouse, provides administrative support and data entry skills across the office, and supports office operations as part of the Administrative/Finance Team. Valerie is grateful that her position lets her work with every member of NYLPI’s team, and particularly enjoys when she can bring her bilingual Spanish skills to bear in helping clients at the front desk.
