Ta'amod: Stand Up! NYC

I help things run better! Whether organizational culture and functionality, personal or professional development or group dynamics, I offer guidance, feedback and tools to move people and processes forward. As a trainer, facilitator and Jewish educator I provide an objective viewpoint to organizations supporting them in reflecting their mission and values in internal processes and culture. Currently, I serve as the inaugural National Director of Ta’amod: Stand Up, a multi-pronged initiative dedicated to ending gender abuse and harassment in the Jewish communal workplace. I have held multiple department head roles for local and National Jewish, secular and nonprofit arts organizations. I also develop workshops and work privately with individuals as a coach and guide on a variety of social emotional topics, including soulful parenting, infusing personal values in everyday life, women’s empowerment, career development, self-discovery and more.

Subjects of expertise:

Everyday mindfulness for everybody and situation

Clearing the path for personal/professional development

Women’s empowerment and self-care

Improving relationships (partners, friends, colleagues, with ourselves…)

creating safe, respectful, equitable workplaces Jewish Education - applying Jewish values and traditions frames to all of the above and myriad other topics.
