Philip has dedicated her distinguished career to the creation of programming and emergency/intervention services for women and families impacted by addiction, sexual abuse, and intimate partner violence. During her tenure, Marie contributed to the development of domestic violence policy, program initiatives and funding, and worked with DV service providers and advocates to improve the coordination of DV services citywide.
