Secretary/Treasurer of the Nicholas & Dorothy Cummings Foundation
A licensed clinical social worker, she received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles and her master’s degree in psychiatric social work from Adelphi University. She has worked in the Family Service Agency in both New York City and San Francisco, and was on the staff of the Golden Gate Community Mental Health Center. For many years she was a school social worker for the Sacramento (California) Unified School District.
Married to Nick Cummings for 65 years, she has always been a proponent of strong family ties, and she arranged all of her professional activities to coincide with her children’s school schedules and their other needs. Her husband attributes his productivity to the inspiration she always provided, and she was not only supportive, but insistent of his many risk-taking professional ventures.
Currently she is secretary/treasurer of The Nicholas & Dorothy Cummings Foundation, Inc. and a member of the board of directors of the Cummings Foundation for Behavioral Health, Inc.
