Jeanne Glassman Clair received her Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University in 1996, changing careers after 15 years in the business world. She began her new professional life at a therapeutic pre-school in East Harlem where she worked with severely emotionally disabled pre-school children and their families.
In 1998, Jeanne joined CIS to pilot a counseling program at a high school in East New York, Brooklyn, where she provided direct service to students and families. She introduced a successful creative arts component including: yoga, drumming, drama, and art. In 2001 and 2002 Jeanne provided direct service and supervision to many individuals suffering from the traumatic aftermath of 9/11 through Project Liberty.
Since that time, Jeanne has devoted her professional life to supporting Counseling in Schools’ structural development and growth. As Director of Operations for CIS, Jeanne continues to be involved in all aspects of program development, daily operations, professional development and staff support.
