Eileen Oakley studied political science at Wellesley College and culinary arts at Johnson & Wales University. She has been president of her family’s foundation, The Brennan Family Foundation, since 1994, which gives grants to local organizations in New York and Florida.
Ms. Oakley and husband Dan have six children and she enjoys playing golf and equestrian sports.
She considered herself a “frequent flyer” to the hospital, and joined ELIH Foundation because she sees how vital it is to the community. Her favorite events are the Golf Classic and Claudio’s Dancing on the Dock Party, and she has been on the Golf and Gala committees.
