Engagement/ Jewish Life Coordinator
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.

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.
