Maura Schmitz

Senior Administrative Coordinator

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers Encinitas, CA

Maura keeps Moishe House’s operations running smoothly as the Senior Administrative Coordinator, based in the Encinitas office. She channels her inner Destiny’s Child every day dealing with all of Moishe House’s “bills, bills, bills.” And when she wants a break from that, she gets to dive deep in all of Moishe House programming metrics, watching numbers flux from month to month and admiring the work Moishe House’s community builders do around the world. Nothing makes her smile more than perfect payment requests, but baby animals are a close second.

Maura is an Angeleno who moved to the Bay Area to pursue a Master’s in Historical and Cultural Studies of Religion. After completing her degree, she dedicated many years to working in urban education both in Oakland and Newark, New Jersey, teaching reading and running school operations.
