An active member in her community, Porter Poznansky serves as the co-chair of the Diversity Committee of the Union County Bar Association.

“At SEEDS, we truly believe that, when access meets opportunity, amazing outcomes happen. The type of commitment Eagle Pharmaceuticals has made to SEEDS — supporting our scholars, providing internships, leaning into volunteer opportunities — that has real impact on people’s lives. They ensure SEEDS’ outcomes, the type of success we celebrate in alum NaSheena Porter Poznansky and her impactful legal career,” SEEDS CEO and President John Castano said.
