Outreach and Engagement Committee Member & Event Series Leader

Where are you from?

My family is from NYC but I grew up in Nevada.

What you do here in Pittsburgh professionally?

I am a CPA at a Squirrel Hill tax office.

What you do personally (hobbies, etc.)?

I enjoy meditation, tennis, yoga, volleyball, and trivia.

Your favorite thing about Pittsburgh or in Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh has a great Jewish community and a city-wide friendly atmosphere. There are (were) so many places to eat, drink, and socialize at.

What you’re excited for this year as part of the Outreach and Engagement committee?

This year I am excited to bring a continued and improved sense of Jewish community despite the virtual requirements we face. I look forward to planning events which allow for building relationships, experiencing joyousness, and embracing Judaism.

Dietary laws may not be observed at private events.

The full inclusion of people of all abilities is a core value of the Pittsburgh Jewish Community.
Please discuss disability-related accommodations with the contact person for each event.
