GREENWICH — A woman who was previously the director of youth and families at the Greenwich YMCA has been accused of embezzlement at another branch of the YMCA in Rye, N.Y.

Lee Ann Borg, of Croton, N.Y., was arrested Tuesday and accused of stealing over $190,000. She was making personal purchases with the Rye YMCA corporate credit card, according to the Westchester County District Attorney.

According to a statement from the DA, “She allegedly abused (her) authority by making personal purchases from retail stores for items such as prescription medication, clothing and other personal items as well as several thousand dollars in gift cards deposited into her PayPal account for her personal use.”

She was charged with one count of grand larceny in Rye City Court.

Borg worked at the Greenwich Y for four years, as a personal trainer; director of membership, programs and wellness; and youth and families director, according to her LinkedIn page. She also volunteered at the Byram Archibald Neighborhood Center.

Borg began her position at the Rye YMCA in 2016. Financial discrepancies were discovered at the Rye YMCA, and law enforcement was contacted.

Borg was also a director of youth and family at the Y in Stamford.

There was no immediate comment from the Greenwich Y.
