As an educational consultant and coach for a variety of organizations and their leaders, I offer my clients an integrative approach to managing change, drawing from my experience and study in the worlds of education and organizational development.
My career developed out of my passion for experiential education, starting with student activism, expanding into Jewish identity development, pluralistic programming, travel education and then into organizational development. Born and raised in London, England, I have lived and studied on three continents; at Oxford University in the UK, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Georgetown University in Washington DC.
I have worked as a front-line programmer and educator, as well as a senior manager and strategic planner. In addition I have served on the Boards of Melitz (in Israel), Hazon (based in New York) and on the founding Board of Sela Public Charter School, a Hebrew-English charter school in Washington DC.
Immediately before I opened this consulting practice, I was Vice President for Jewish Experience at Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, in Washington DC, where I was responsible for educational strategy and implementation. I managed a large team, oversaw the expansion of the social justice agenda throughout the Hillel system, experimented with a new model for volunteer leader engagement, and pioneered a new program for senior Jewish educators. Previous to this I lived in Israel, where I worked as a Jewish educator with a wide range of populations and studied in the Jerusalem Fellows program at the Mandel Leadership Institute.
