Three Fast Facts
1.  I have a dog named Toast and a cat named Tiny.
2. I am from Southern California.
3. I lived in Thailand.

More about Chelsea
I grew up in Southern California as a very active participant in my youth group and synagogue. Both of my parents are teachers so you could say it’s in my blood! I went to college in Long Beach and got a degree in Communication Studies and Leisure and Recreation. I worked with several URJ programs over the years including several summers at URJ Camp Newman and Mitzvah Corps. I took a year off to live in Thailand and teach English, and have otherwise been working in the Jewish world my entire adult life. I am excited to be doing the work I love of empowering teens and creating community with Congregation Beth Israel.

What I do at CBI
I work with our youth and young families to create programs and connect people with one another. If you are someone who is, or has a kid, between the ages of 0 and 18 I am your person.
