Elizabeth B. Healy
I have been a Chamber member since 2020 and have served as a Chamber Ambassador for much of that time. I am an acupuncturist with a local practice in Greenwich Village – West Village Acupuncture. I have practiced acupuncture in the West Village for 18 years and have previously lived there from 1984-2006. The Village and its business community has been very important to me and continues to be so.
My experience has been quite positive and I have been impressed with the Chamber's overall organization and the actions it has undertaken for the benefit of the membership and the local business community. I have a special place in my heart for the Village and surrounding communities. This is even more so given the events of the past year. I have seen so many businesses close and more and more empty storefronts appear everyday. I feel I cannot just sit by and complain about what I see. I believe that I have an obligation to take affirmative action to help local businesses and the overall Village and Chelsea communities. I believe one important way for me to do this is to become even more active in the GVCCC. Moving from an Ambassador to a Board Member seems like a natural progression and I am excited about the possibility of taking on this new role.
I bring a variety of skills to the table. Prior to becoming an acupuncturist, I was a practicing attorney for 18 years and served as house counsel for Ernst & Young LLP. I was a partner in the companion firm of Ernst & Young U.S. LLP. As such I have well developed organizational and operational skills, and am good at issue spotting and problem solving. I hope to bring these skills to bear as a GVCCC Board Member.
