What was your favorite way to give back this year? 
Celebrating my 7 years of friendship with Dimitriy through Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters (JBBBS), and high-fiving Sammy—a very shy but dedicated Boys & Girls Club member—after he overcame his fear of public speaking and shared the Club's impact on his life.  

What other organizations, boards, charities, etc. are you a part of? 

  • Board of Directors and Friend2Friend MAGIC volunteer at JBBBS  
  • Friend2Friend Advisory Board Co-chair at JBBBS 
  • Charlestown Clubhouse Tutor at Boys & Girls Club of Boston 
  • Alumni Association, GOLD Council and Class Agent, Clark University 
  • Eser leader and Eser Program Committee member    

Just a few of my fun facts are… 

  • I am a proud alumna of Clark University, where I received my bachelor's and master's degrees, after initially refusing to get out of the car for my college tour.  
  • I ran thirteen 5k's in 2013 and love nothing more than a themed spin class (Beyoncé vs. Whitney Houston being my favorite). 
  • I donated my 30th birthday to charity and asked friends to donate to the "Robin's Fund for the Young While Getting Old," which raised more than $3,000 for two incredible youth serving organizations in Boston.
