As I begin my third 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 over 35 years. We are so lucky to have three daughters, Emily, Margot and Hilary, two sons-in-law, Eric and Rob, and four grandchildren, Lyla, Henry, Celeste, and Olivia. We are also fortunate to have Steve’s mother, 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!
