I am very excited to join the F&M Hillel team as the Engagement/ Jewish Life Coordinator.  As a recent Franklin & Marshall student, class of 2013, I spent much of my time at the Klehr Center for Jewish Life, enjoying all that Hillel has to offer.  Aside from Hillel, I was very active in the F&M community both as a student in the Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies departments and a student leader.  I love talking about my time at Franklin & Marshall, and am open to any and all questions!  As far as my role at Hillel goes, I have the pleasure of working closely with our students, and plan and recruit for our Alternative Spring Break programs and Birthright trips.

After working more than a decade with Dean Taber, I have the pleasure of continuing with him in his position as the Director of the Klehr Center for Jewish Life. I enjoy working with a very enthusiastic group of students and to a year full of opportunities and growth for both them and the Klehr Center.

I chose to live in a rural area so that I could have flowers, a big garden and most of all, my 5 sheep, many ducks, chickens, and assorted adopted animals.
