I am thrilled to be joining the
Norton & Elaine Sarnoff Center for Jewish Genetics in the newly-created
Program Associate role. I will be working on the Sarnoff Center recessive
disorder screening program, educational initiatives, event planning, and the
Center’s social media outlets. I grew up in Chicago and moved to Richmond,
Virginia for college. I majored in Biology and minored in Religious Studies at
the University of Richmond. The Sarnoff Center position offers a perfect
melding of my passion of Biology and Jewish Studies which I have been missing
since graduating college. I am excited to work in a science/health-focused
nonprofit that aims to help the Chicago Jewish Community. Previously, I was a
Campaign Associate for the Young Leadership Division at the Jewish United Fund.
I currently enjoy attending summer festivals, concerts, and familiarizing
myself with my new neighborhood, Lakeview.
