Cindy was instrumental in the implementation of the Tippecanoe County Adult Drug Court program. She continues to have an Al-Anon sponsor and also sponsors newcomers. Cindy currently serves on the Community Transition Board, Ivy Tech Human Services Advisory Board and the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy (LARA) Work One Board.
