Hello there! Someday I'll write a book about my unconventional journey, but let's start here: I was born and raised in Missouri and Nebraska, and I currently live in Denver by way of Washington, D.C., Chicago, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Israel.
With a bachelor's of journalism from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I worked as a copy editor for The Denver Post and The Washington Post and as an copyeditor before moving to Chicago in 2007 to work as an assistant to Nobel-prize winning economist James Heckman at the University of Chicago. In 2010, I received a master's degree in Judaic studies from the University of Connecticut and began pursuing my second and third M.A.s at NYU before moving to Denver in 2011 to work for the Colorado Agency for Jewish Education.
Then, one sunny summer day in 2012, I decided to make aliyah. In Israel, I met my husband, got married, and had a son, Asher--all in one crazy year. We moved back to the U.S. in 2014 to be closer to my ill father. In 2016, I added a daughter, Tirzah, to the family, and in 2018, I added another son, Zusha.
I've worked for nonprofits and for-profits alike and am passionate about the digital experience and how brands and humans can convey their stories through digital channels. From 2015-2017, I worked for highly touted startup Teforia, and from 2018-2020, I worked as a senior copywriter for an inbound marketing agency called SmartBug Media. Now, I'm a digital content manager for Terakeet, a rapidly growing enterprise SEO and content marketing agency.
