Aviva was born in Boston, Massachusetts, where her mother still serves as a congregational rabbi and her father works in health care policy. When she was five, Aviva and her family moved to Israel, where they lived for two years; her younger brother Yonah was born in Jerusalem. Growing up, Aviva loved politics. In high school, she and her father flew down to Florida as part of "Operation Bubbe" to turn out the older Jewish vote. In college, Aviva worked on campaigns and studied public policy. After graduating, she served for four years as a corps member with Teach for America, teaching Algebra and leading the special education department. After running successfully for very local office, Aviva and her co-founder founded BallotReady, an award-winning voter guide to every race and referendum. Right now across the United States there are over 500,000 local elected officials and its almost impossible to cast an informed vote on the entire ballot. As a result, voters tend to guess, leave blanks, or stay home altogether. With BallotReady, voters can type in their address to view every candidate and initiative on their personal ballot. From there, they can compare candidates based on stances on issues, biography, and endorsements. Once they've made a decision, voters can save their choice to pull up on their phone in the voting booth. BallotReady now houses the most comprehensive database to local politics. Aviva serves as BallotReady's co-founder and COO and is leading BallotReady's expansion to all 50 states in 2018.
