For the past 26 years Regina has spent her policy, managerial and legal career in both the private and public sector. She is presently an attorney working for the State of New York.

Prior to her state appointment, Regina served as Chief Deputy to the Suffolk County Executive where she managed a county of over 1.6 million residents, a $2.7 billion annual budget and a 9,500-employee workforce. During her tenure she managed the county’s fiscal crisis and oversaw the county’s day-to-day operations and its immediate response and recovery to Superstorm Sandy.

The majority of Regina’s private sector experience was as a partner to Barrack, Rodos & Bacine, an internationally recognized securities litigation firm where she represented defrauded public and labor pension funds from those who committed corporate fraud on Wall Street.

She proudly serves as board vice president to You Gotta Believe, an organization that works towards finding older foster children forever homes.
