Linda Coppinger – Special Projects Coordinator
Linda joined Rothkoff Law Group after many years with the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter. She began serving at the Alzheimer’s Association as Executive Director South Jersey in 2007. 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.
Linda’s extensive nonprofit experience has given her a wealth of knowledge about advocacy, fundraising, grant writing, training, management and administration. Prior to working in the senior community, she spent nine years working with youths as a professional Girl Scout. She was Assistant Executive Director at the Girl Scouts of the South Jersey Pines and Director of Fund Development & Communications at the Girl Scouts of Camden County. She has worked in in the field of intellectual/developmental disabilities for many years, including stints at the Arc of Camden County in Berlin, NJ and the Bancroft School in Haddonfield. She began her career at Robin’s Nest, Inc. working with at-risk adolescent girls.
Community involvement has been a long-time passion for Linda. Before becoming a professional Girl Scout, Linda volunteered for the organization for ten years in a variety of positions, including President of the Board of Directors at the Camden County Council. She has been on the Board of Trustees at the Alice Paul Institute, Inc. in Mount Laurel since 2012 and became Board Chair in April 2017. Linda continues her connection with the Alzheimer’s Association as a volunteer member of the South Jersey Advocacy Committee and as an Ambassador assigned to U.S. Representative Donald Norcross (NJ District 1). She also is a volunteer member of Team Pocono at the Pocono Raceway. She was a founding member of the Burlington County Regional Chamber’s Ambassador Club and served as one of their ambassadors for ten years.
Linda graduated from Rowan University with a degree in Elementary Education and holds a Masters of Organizational Leadership from Rider University.
