About me

Welcome to my website. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am a Public Relations, Communications, and Fundraising leader with over 25 years of non-profit and university experience. I have been working with students as a lecturer and a student success coach at the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communications since 2015. When I'm not teaching, I volunteer and use my PR skills to make a difference in areas that I'm passionate about as a writer and volunteer activist. Some of my passion topics include:

Prior to teaching, my work experience focused on making a difference in the non-profit world. These positions include:

 

  • Senior communications manager for the CPA Exam at the American Institute of CPAs in Ewing, NJ from 2012 to 2015. 

  • Director of marketing and development for the Jewish Federation in Princeton, New Jersey from 2008 to 2011.

  • Communications manager and grants administrator for Foundations, Inc. from 2005 to 2007.

  • Essence of Life in Tel Aviv, Israel from from 2004 to 2005.

  • The Peres Center for Peace in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2002.

  • Director of Community Relations, The Israeli Consulate in New York from 1995 to 1997.

Writer and social activist

I have been active in the community since childhood, whether heading up a food drive or organizing fundraising events. Most recently, I engaged in local advocacy issues helping kids with autism transition into the public school system AND working with a school district in Florida on ending anti-Semitic incidents in area public schools. I also served as a board member of my local synagogue, was the Vice President of Public Relations for my local Hadassah chapter, and was the campaign chair for my university Jewish Federation annual campaign. ​​

Education

I hold a Master's degree in Middle East Studies from New York University and a another Master's in Teaching from Columbia University's Teachers' College. I completed my Bachelor's degree in 1994 at Georgetown University and am bilingual in English and Hebrew.

I moved to beautiful Delaware County (DelCo) Pennsylvania with my husband and two kids in the summer of 2021.
