Three Fast Facts
1.  I’ve traveled to 16 countries.
2. I volunteer at a horse sanctuary.
3. I jumped off of a 30-foot cliff into a quarry for a film, and never want to do it again. 

More about Talya
I grew up bicultural and bilingual in Bloomington, Indiana. I have a B.A. in Theatre and Community Development from Sarah Lawrence College (where I met our Executive Director, Josh!) and have a background in theatre and film. I carry that collaborative spirit into all of the work that I do.

What I do at CBI
At CBI I do everything I can to make sure that anything financial feels as easy-breezy as possible for our congregants.
