Meet Jeffrey Heller, Lawyer, R.N. (as his e-mail signature reads).
Jeffrey comes to Project Guardianship from ReServe, an organization that matches retired professionals looking to serve the public good with the nonprofits who welcome their services.
Since 2012, Jeffrey has been bicycling several days a week all over New York City visiting Project Guardianship clients in their homes, and in nursing homes and hospitals.
Jeffrey’s journey of life has been as colorful as his bicycling tours of the city. Raised in a rural farming community in upstate New York, he has been a corporate bankruptcy attorney, a law professor, a private attorney assisting asylum seekers, and a registered nurse.
Jeffrey says it is his joy to find something in common with “just about anybody” that allows him to enter a client’s world.
