Sylvia brings a wealth of experience leading human service-related non-profits and has hit the ground running at PSKS.”

Sylvia Fuerstenberg, MSW, is a visionary leader with 32 years of executive leadership experience who has excelled in a broad range of human services endeavors; from juvenile rehabilitation, wilderness adventure programs for delinquents, inner city programs for teens in NYC and has for the past 32 plus years, built her career on promoting youth development and supports for people with developmental disabilities in community settings.
