As I begin my second year as President of CBB, I’d like to thank you for giving me this opportunity. I have loved every minute of my time as President. The experience has been one of the highlights of my life. I am so grateful for the support I have received from so many of you. Working with such dedicated lay leaders, talented staff and gifted clergy, has made my job so fulfilling.
I joined the CBB Board in 2014 as an at-large Trustee, later becoming Program Vice President, then Development Vice President. I have served on the Executive Committee since 2016.
I was born in New Jersey, raised in Granada Hills and Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. I attended the University of Pennsylvania, receiving a BA and MS in Psychology. I went to UC Davis Law School where I met my husband, Steve. We’ve lived in Los Angeles, Bethesda, Woodland Hills and Princeton before happily landing in Santa Barbara. During that time I worked as a lawyer for First Interstate Bancorp, Standard Chartered Bank and Homes Savings of America in securities, mergers and acquisitions.
I have been involved with many Santa Barbara non-profits since moving here in 2011. Some of the local non-profits include ADL, Girls Inc, Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, FoodBank of Santa Barbara Countyand Women’s Fund.
Steve and I have been married for 35 years. We are so lucky to have three daughters, Emily, Margot and Hilary, two sons-in-law, Eric and Rob, and three grandchildren, Lyla, Henry and Celeste. We are also fortunate to have Steve’s parents, Herb and Bobbie, living in Santa Barbara at Valle Verde. CBB has become a vital part of our family. We are so grateful for the community we have found here!
