YLD Board Member Bio

E Nedelman

Erica Nedelman is serving her third year on the YLD Board. Growing up in Farmington Hills, MI, Erica continued the family tradition and attended The University of Michigan (Go Blue!). Erica obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Art History in 2009 before moving to Chicago to obtain her MBA in Finance from Loyola University Chicago's Graduate School of Business in 2011. Currently, Erica works as a Finance Manager at Edelman Public Relations. Erica first became involved in JUF as a LEADS participant in the summer of 2010, which program sparked her ongoing involvement in Chicago's YLD and her desire to become more involved in the Chicago Jewish community. During her past two years on the Board, she has continued to be involved in LEADS, Gesher, TribeFest, the Big Event and numerous other YLD activities and events. In her free time, Erica enjoys spinning classes, cooking and baking, and cheering on her Michigan Wolverines - especially attending as many football games at the Big House as possible!
