Three Fast Facts
1.  I was born and raised in a national forest in the San Bernardino Mountains.
2. After years of musical and dance training, I still have no sense of rhythm and struggle clap on beat. I have studied clarinet, piano, guitar, ballet, hip hop dance, ballroom dance, and even taught Israeli dance.  
3. I met my husband at CBI where we taught preschool together for 3 years.

More about Shoshanna
Shoshanna grew up in a small named Lake Arrowhead, CA where she had beautiful summers and snow winters (yes it happens in CA!). Despite her synagogue being a 45 minute drive, Shoshanna was an active participant in youth group and synagogue life. As she grew up she attended and worked at URJ Camp Newman for many years. When Shoshanna was 17 she attended California State University, Northridge and vowed to take a step back from “Jewish leadership.” 4 months later she was on the campus Hillel Board. Shoshanna has a BA in Anthropology with a Jewish Studies minor and a Masters in Public Health with an emphasis in global health from Oregon State University. She hopes to one day work in public health supporting women’s health. Shoshanna has been working with CBI for 4+ years; 3+ years being in the preschool and youth programming and 1.5 years in her current position.

What I do at CBI
I help build our community by helping new members get involved and I play with excel, a lot.
