Special Events & Program Coordinator
Jewish Federation of
Lee & Charlotte County
Shalom! As I step into this role, my primary goal is to curate extraordinary events that embrace and strengthen our community's bonds, while celebrating the beauty of our heritage and traditions.
My passion for events was ignited during my time as the owner of an event company, where I discovered the immense joy of creating unforgettable moments. Given my Jewish upbringing and the resonance I feel with the values of the Federation, this opportunity felt like destiny calling. An amusing fun fact about me is that from an early age, I unwittingly displayed my innate event planning talents, as I constantly found myself planning various gatherings, envisioning them a whole year ahead. Now, with excitement and dedication, I bring this lifelong passion and love for event planning to create memorable experiences for our wonderful community.
