Director of Volunteer Services
Amaris White developed extensive volunteer and pro-bono legal experience while working as an attorney prior to joining Catholic Charities. She is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the National Blood Clot Alliance, and is excited to continue pursuing her passion of helping New Yorkers in need. Amaris is a graduate of Columbia Law School, has a B.S. in Business Administration and a B.A. in Economics from the University of California at Berkeley, is a California native, an avid runner, and loves to travel the world – most recently she spent a half year backpacking through South America and Southeast Asia.
Patrice Bailey is an experienced professional with a demonstrated history of working in the sales, marketing and healthcare industries. Her goal is to own her own business one day, but for now she wants to make her mark in the non-profit world. Patrice enjoys working with those in need while teaming up with other professionals who share the same desire to make a difference. She loves learning about different cultures and she even played the steel drums with a steel pan orchestra in Brooklyn, New York.
Volunteer Special Projects Assistant
Damian Buzzerio has been working as an administrative temp and actor in NYC since 2000. Catholic Charities was one of his early experiments in the non-profit world of temping. The experience has proved to be decidedly life-affirming. He is grateful to be able to support the Volunteer Team for such a great organization.
