YLD Board Member Bio

E Nedelman

Erica Nedelman is entering her second year on the YLD Board. Growing up in Farmington Hills, MI, Erica continued the family tradition and attended The University of Michigan. Erica obtained her Bachelors 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 Senior Financial Analyst 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. She has continued to be involved in LEADS as a leader, has participated in Gesher, and attended TribeFest and the Big Event, among other YLD events. In her free time, Erica enjoys taking Zumba classes, cooking and baking, and cheering on her Michigan Wolverines - especially attending as many football games at the Big House as possible!
