Amy Peck is a health provider and businesswoman who has specialized in adolescent issues throughout both her professional and volunteer life. She has run a successful nutrition therapy practice for over 35 years providing specialized care for teens and adults. Amy has been a featured speaker at dozens of professional conferences and worked with for corporations including IBM and ConEdison, as well as many smaller local businesses. Amy served as the regional chairperson for The Fresh Air Fund for eight years and on the Board of Directors of Latino U College Access while incubating Campus Bound Scholars. She has been a volunteer ‘big sister’ through the Big Brother/ Big Sister program, and mentored her own Fresh Air Fund child for over 20 years from elementary school right through college and graduate school. This experience inspired Amy to create Campus Bound Scholars to support other students who are first in their family to attend college. Campus Bound Scholars has been a labor of love for Amy, and nurturing it into a thriving organization now supporting dozens of deserving students has been one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. Amy earned a BA from Middlebury College, was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Traveling Fellowship and earned a Master’s Degree in Science from Columbia University. She and her husband Ralph Sinsheimer are the proud parents of three wonderful adult children.

Jorge Wilmer

Treasurer, Board of Directors, Mentor

Jorge Wilmer immigrated to the US when he was 12 years old and attended Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, VA. He went on to Colorado College for his undergraduate degree and European University in Belgium for his MBA. He has over 26 years’ experience in corporate and investment banking advising clients on capital market and transaction banking initiatives. Jorge began his banking career at BHF-Bank in Frankfurt, Germany and later moved to New York where he spent time at UBS, JP Morgan and UniCredit helping to build their Latin America and FIG franchises and serving on the Americas Executive Committee of the latter. In recent years, Jorge embarked on an entrepreneurial path as COO of REDD Intelligence which was sold in 2022 allowing him to pursue other interests. During Jorge’s transition to the US at a young age, he felt the challenges of navigating an unfamiliar environment and was grateful for the support of countless teachers and mentors who guided him along the way. CBS is a wonderful way to give back by seeking to improve the transition to college life for first gen students. Jorge and his wife Antje have three adult children, Nicolas, Sofia, and Ana ’19, ’22 and ’26 graduates of Duke University.

Lori Adelsberg

Board of Directors, Mentor

Lori Adelsberg is an Admissions Associate at the Rippowam Cisqua School where she has guided families through the admissions process for over 18 years. Prior to her tenure at RCS, she worked in the media and marketing industry as a corporate Vice President of Research and later as owner of her own consulting firm. She also served as President of the Foundation at her local public school and was actively involved in the PTA.  After seeing her son and daughter through their undergraduate and graduate programs at Goucher, Vanderbilt, Tufts and Boston University, she has seen the value of a secure support system as students navigate their college experiences.  She was thrilled at the opportunity to share her passion for education to first generation college students by providing a similar support system to two students through CBS. An especially rewarding part of her role at CBS is to assist in the selection process where she has the opportunity to meet prospective students at a consequential time in their lives. Lori has a BA in Psychology from SUNY Oneonta and is married to Marc Adelsberg, a Clinical Psychologist, who is also a CBS mentor.
