Alayne is now stepping into her 4th position at the Chapter. In 2009-2010, she was the administrative social work intern. Upon graduation, she stayed with NASW part-time for almost another year as the Administrator for Special Projects, where she convened focus groups of mid-level social workers in different fields of practice to identify prevalent issues for the field. Alayne’s return to NASW was as the 2012 Awards Dinner Coordinator. From there, she joined the staff as the Interim Program and Administrative Associate.

Alayne’s most memorable experience in her career thus far was visiting Haiti only two months after the 2010 devastating earthquake, with a few other students from a class at Fordham on International Social Development. The disaster response trip gave birth to The Haiti Initiative, Inc. (THI), a non-profit devoted to sustainability and reforestation in Haiti in conjunction with employment, education, etc. The organization’s mission was conceived during the 2010 trip and today is a rapidly growing non-profit.
When not working for NASW-NYC, Alayne dances and previously worked as a gymnastics coach.
