As the New York Sr. Community Manager, Michele employs a relational engagement approach to support the Moishe House residents in the Greater New York City region. She finds energy in Moishe House’s position as a participant-driven organization and loves empowering residents to dream big and think outside of their boxes when building community. And if the mean streets of New York are ever getting residents down, Michele can turn the tides because her superpower is giving awesome pep talks.
Michele grew up in California and graduated from Sonoma State University with a B.A. in Communication and Media Studies. She then moved across the country to work as the Director of Jewish Student Life at the University of Connecticut Hillel in Storrs, CT, before moving to New York City and working at the 14th Street Y before joining the Moishe House team.
