Jennifer Sunderlin '04 was recently appointed to serve on the Board of Directors of the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York. Sunderlin graduated with a double major in Government and Theatre. At Hamilton, she was a member of Gamma Xi and Special K. After graduation, she attended Albany Law School of Union University and earned her Juris Doctor in 2007.

According to a press release from Tully Rinckey PLLC, Sunderlin is one of three new appointees welcomed to the Girl Scouts' Board for 2009. Her role will be to further the Girl Scouts' mission of building the courage, confidence, and character of girl scouts throughout the council.

"I'm a former Girl Scout and I remember what a wonderful experience it was for me as a child," said Sunderlin. "I hope to use my legal background to help girls within our council address issues they may be facing and ultimately serve as a role model to them."

Sunderlin is an associate attorney at Tully Rinckey PLLC, where she concentrates her practice in family and matrimonial law and special education law. In addition to her work in private practice, she participates in the Modest Means panel pro-bono legal program, which offers reduced legal services to low-income litigants with family law cases in Schenectady, NY. She also volunteers at pro bono legal clinics through the Legal Project and is an active member of the New York State Bar Association.

Girl Scouts is the preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls, which allows them to develop leadership skills for success in the real world. The Northeastern New York chapter serves over 14,500 girls in Albany, Clinton, Columbia, Greene, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Montgomery, Hamilton, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren and Washington Counties and a portion of St. Lawrence County.
