I have been involved in Holocaust education for almost 20 years and have had the honor to meet many survivors and have traveled to Europe and Israel several times. I am mom to three sons and nana to two grandchildren. My husband and I have been married for 37 years. I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s TOLI class if 2019 and look forward to meeting all of you!
