Extraordinary Ventures Appoints a New Director

The Board of Directors of Extraordinary Ventures New York is thrilled to announce the appointment of Elizabeth Oliveto as its new Director.   Liz comes to EVNY with many years experience working with children and adults with autism, as an educator with the Devereux Millwood Learning Center and most recently as a job coach with the Devereux Adult Program.  She has been working with EVNY on a part time basis since the fall as the Sales Development Director, recruiting and training adults to sell our candles at various venues throughout Westchester County.

The video above highlights Liz’s natural talent and enthusiasm which she will continue to bring to our first business; seasonally and festively decorated candles which are being sold through Westchester at craft and gift fairs and will expand this summer to farmers markets in the area.  Look for a photographic array of candles which can be personalized for weddings and party favors, teacher and staff gifts and decorated to festively accompany the seasons and a continuously updated calendar on our website.
