An attorney and editor with more than 10 years of legal experience, Alexis Rudman currently serves as a vice president at National Learning Corporation, a leading provider of test preparation materials. Previously, she has provided document review services and legal project support for several New York law firms and consultancies. Outside of work, Alexis Rudman supports charitable causes such as Wounded Warrior Project and Easterseals.

Since 1967, Easterseals has provided education, outreach, and advocacy to help people with disabilities to integrate themselves more fully into their communities. Among the organization’s initiatives is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), which provides job training and encourages civil engagement among low-income older adults.

By partnering with local non-profit organizations and government agencies, the transitional employment program helps older adults cultivate the skills they need to achieve their employment goals. Since its establishment in 2003, the program has helped more than 2000 adults transition to employment and move towards economic independence.
