ACCESS works to ensure that all young people in Massachusetts have the financial information and resources necessary to find an affordable path to – and through – a postsecondary education. To accomplish this, the organization provides free financial aid advice and advocacy to all the students of Boston and Springfield.

ACCESS has helped students secure more than $150 million in financial aid in the last three years alone and has awarded more than $5 million in need-based last dollar scholarships since its founding, with a 75 percent college graduation rate for the students it serves.

In addition to her work as chairman and managing partner of Goodwin Procter, Pisa’s law practice focuses primarily on mergers, acquisitions and restructurings in the financial services industry, representing both banks and investment companies. In 2010, she was inducted into the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Academy of Distinguished Bostonians.
