After an extensive and successful teaching career in the Rumson School District, I learned about Chhange from a friend, and came as a volunteer in 2008. Since then, I have become a full-time volunteer and have assumed responsibility for many of our dynamic and innovative services as coordinator of the Survivor Curriculum Suitcase Program, and the Speakers’ Bureau.
I am a program presenter/exhibit docent for visiting school groups. In addition, I manage the daily needs of the office ordering supplies, help to enlist and coordinate volunteers, and often serve as “in house” caterer for programs or meetings. I also serve on many committees and often host the Registration table, welcoming attendees at most of Chhange’s major programs and events.
I hold a BS in Elementary Education from Monmouth College and an MA in Human Development from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
Being a part of Chhange is extremely rewarding and challenging, and having the opportunity to work with our Holocaust Survivors—my chance to “touch history”—has enriched my life immeasurably.
