A highlight of her Alzheimer’s experience was being appointed by Governor Christie to serve on the New Jersey Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission and helping to create an extensive report detailing recommendations to make New Jersey a dementia-capable state.
Coppinger’s extensive non-profit experience has given her a wealth of knowledge about advocacy, fundraising, grant writing, training, management and administration. With this background, she is planning the Rothkoff Law Group’s Inaugural Symposium for Eldercare Professionals being called “Eldercare: What Does the Future Bring?” that will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in two locations in 2018.

“We are excited to offer a symposium that is unlike any other and know that with Linda at the helm, we’re sure to present a day of useful education we all need,” said Jerry Rothkoff, founder of Rothkoff Law Group.

She began her career at Robin’s Nest, Inc. working with at-risk adolescent girls.
Community involvement has been a long-time passion for Coppinger.
