Community Manager


New York, NY

I am the Community Manager at Madeo, a digital agency here in NYC. I work to create a space where our team and our client's teams can effectively and creatively collaborate.



I am LARGE, I contain [MULTITUDES]. - Walt Whitman
My dream job includes: community organizing around social needs, preferably in the non-profit sphere, with a flexible schedule so I can volunteer and actively be involved in social movements.



Since moving to New York, I've wanted to become involved with a volunteer organization that fights for human rights. IfNotNow does that. IfNotNow is a movement pushing to end the American Jewish support of the occupation in Israel/Palestine.

Like in my everyday job, my role in the movement is to help foster community. My role as a hivekeeper is to communicate between teams, keep a pulse on what is going on, and help organize monthly meetings (among other tasks). Being a part of this movement allows me to do work that I care deeply about while being supported by a wonderful community.



Community Manager

In my role, I work to create a collaborate environment for our team to work with our Clients. My daily responsibilities range from project management and planning to hiring and picking up the mail. I am forced to question, daily, what community means and how our company can work towards building a successful community.

Shuman Associates Inc

Office Assistant

I learned about my passion for operation through supporting the Shuman Associates Inc staff over the past three months. Although my other skills were used (ability to edit through photoshop, create social media postings), I was able to fine tune my ability to gauge what other's needed before it was needed. I strengthened my ability to prioritize tasks and carry them out.

Kivunim New Directions

Ancient Studies/Civilization, Middle Eastern Politics, Hebrew and Arabic

February of my senior year of college I didn't want to go to college, I just wasn't ready. My friend told me about Kivunim and I applied the next day. This program taught me that there is more in the world than the small town I grew up in, it taught me to always look up, always ask questions, and always eat outside of your comfort zone.
