Edna Rienzi Cropped

Edna Rienzi

Director of Programs

Edna is passionate about focusing on “more of what matters” in her life, which is what led her to initially volunteer with New Dream in 2012. Prior to New Dream, she was a lawyer and, then, a full-time mom. 

Edna received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University in politics, with certificates in Latin American Studies and Political Theory. She has her Master’s in Political Science from Yale University, and a law degree from Harvard University, where she also served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review. 

In her precious free time, Edna loves reading everything from Harry Potter to positive psychology studies to poetry, listening to Mumford and Sons, volunteering in her town, and cooking adventurous dishes that her kids often refuse to eat.
