In addition, Mazzenga is past president of The Long Island Center for Business and Professional Women. In 1998, the organization honored Mazzenga with its Annual Women in Business Achievers Award.
Leveraging her notoriety in the women’s business community, Mazzenga was instrumental in launching the Marcum Women’s Leadership Development Program, a cutting-edge initiative to help promote and nourish the careers of the firm’s female managers and partners. In addition, Mazzenga serves as a mentor for several firm managers and provides specialized tax training.
Mazzenga is also known for her philanthropic involvements. For the past four years, Mazzenga has been serving on the Board of Directors for Long Island Cares and is a former board member of the Nassau County Girl Scouts.
