A real estate professional, Hampton Luzak buys, restores, and flips houses in the Connecticut, New York, and South Carolina markets. Prior to her work in real estate, Hampton Luzak served in a variety of creative roles that included casting director and television producer. In addition, she remains active as a philanthropist and actively supports the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA).

A stewardship organization, the NSCDA was founded in 1891 to inspire patriotism in Americans by fostering awareness of the people, places, and events that led to the origin of the United States. The society, which consists of 44 local chapters with more than 15,000 members, operates a number of programs ranging from historical initiatives and educational efforts to museums and patriotic programs.

Patriotic programs at the NSCDA include those focused on citizenship, Flag Day, and support of the military. Through the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, which is administered by the American Folklife Center, the NSCDA made a national commitment to help collect and preserve the accounts of veterans. The society also sends packages to active duty personnel, provides volunteers and funding for Veterans Affairs hospitals, collects international phone cards, and donates toys to the children of veterans.
