In June 2018 I announced my resignation from the position of Executive Director of the Jewish Federation of Arkansas, effective 6/30/19, when my current contract expires, or, as soon as 01/01/19, should a replacement be found before the year is up.

Serving and working with the Arkansas Jewish community has been a deeply humbling and immensely fulfilling experience.  I have learned from each and every person with whom I have come into contact.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have served the Arkansas Jewish community

I am excited to start a new chapter in my life working at the Jewish Federation of Arkansas. I earned my masters in social work from the Graduate School of Social Work at UALR.  I received my BA from Hendrix College.  I have previously served as an intern for the Federation, and I have grown to cherish this community and look forward to the experiences that await me.

I also bring with me volunteer experience with other non-profits:  the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, The Boys and Girls Club, Conway Human Development Center, Pathfinders, and Our House.
