I started working at Camp Ruach as the Transportation Coordinator 8 summers ago. I quickly realized I wanted to get more involved. After 2 years I became the Assistant Camp Director and now I am thrilled to be Co-Camp Director. I spend my year planning a summer that will make your children go WOW! My children, like I, love camp and can't imagine spending our summers anywhere but Camp Ruach! It is our "home for the summer".

I have worked for the past 7 years in camp as a unit head and at the JCC in various other roles during the year, running Family /Judaic Programming and PJ Library. I have my masters in Special Education and taught for many years in public school and at our JCC Preschool. Summer is my favorite time of year and Camp Ruach is my favorite place to be. I look forward to this new adventure in my life as Co-Camp Director and continuing to make Camp Ruach my home for the summer.

I have been involved in JCCs for the past 20 years. First, as a camp counselor, specialist and unit head and then as the Camp Director and now as the Associate Executive Director. Before working at camps, I attended both day and resident camp since I was 3 years old. Now, my own two children attend Camp Ruach and have started their own lifelong relations with JCCs and camping. As you can probably tell, this is not just a job but a passion for me. This is my family's home for the summer... and all year long!
