Title

  • Assistant Director, Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations

I am thrilled to have a vocation that is fulfilling, interesting and impactful. Landing at Merrimack College in 2003 and working in interfaith relations with students, community members, and global leaders is a true blessing.

My commitment to diversity education and understanding extends to my volunteer activities as well. On campus, I am a member of the SafeZone Committee to support the local LGBTQ+ community through education and awareness. Off campus, I am a proud PFLAG mom and co-facilitator of the local PFLAG support group for parents of transgender and gender-nonconforming kids, and occasionally speak on LGBTQ+ issues at workshops and conferences. I am also on the board of my congregation, Havurat Shalom of Andover, and on the board of Welcoming Faiths of the Merrimack Valley.

I am a member of the Merrimack Valley chapter of the Daughters of Abraham women’s interfaith book group, committed to building relationships and respect among the three Abrahamic religions, and if I could clone myself I would join the Sisterhood of Salaam-Shalom as well.
