I am the Department Manager and an EDPNA for the Social Security Disability Department. I have represented clients before the Social Security Administration for the past 17 years. I handle all aspects of the claims from initially retaining clients to representing at the Hearing and Appeals Council levels. Many of my previous clients would know me under my maiden name Krasnitsky.

The most enjoyable part of my position is assisting clients obtain the benefits they deserve. I enjoy helping the clients navigate through the process while being understanding and empathetic along the way.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband , family and fur babies.
