Meet Marleen Fenton

My name is Marleen and I am a volunteer interviewer for Maya’s Hope. I’ve lived in New York all of my life and currently reside on Long Island. I have had an eclectic career starting off as a business administrator but decided to follow my dream to become a classroom teacher, eventually leaving the classroom after 27 years to become a service provider for developmentally disabled young adults in a vocational skills program. Most recently I’ve been a COVID-19 Case Investigator/Contact Tracer for New York State and my work in public health was extremely rewarding. I have volunteer experience with a local literacy organization providing services for disadvantaged populations and the American Red Cross organization, providing research support to the Greater New York Regional Philanthropy office. I began working with Maya’s Hope in July and am so fortunate to be part of this wonderfully amazing foundation.
