Profile

I am extremely proud to be both a member of the Philadelphia young adult Jewish community and a professional working to make the community the best it can be.

I work full time as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network. My husband, Marc, likes to say that I knew more people within a week of moving to Philadelphia than he knew after six years here.

I’m originally from the tiny town of Fredonia, NY, and sometimes I still stare at the skyscrapers and marvel at how many Jews I know.

I am a co-founder of Minyan Tikvah (a lay-led prayer group in Center City Philadelphia that meets once a month for traditional egalitarian Shabbat services), a founder of and matchmaker for GradMatch.org, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to two beautiful children.
