Amanda is thrilled to join the LCLJ team this year! Originally from sunny Sarasota, Florida, she attended Indiana University where she studied Jewish Studies and Nonprofit Management. Amanda’s passion for Jewish learning stems from her 8 summers as a camper and counselor at Camp Ramah Darom located in Clayton, Georgia. She moved to New York after college to pursue an M.A in Jewish Education, spending her summers as a Group Leader for a seven week teen tour, USY on Wheels, and staffing Birthright Israel trips. In her free time, Amanda can be found attending Broadway shows, cheering on the Indiana Hoosiers, spending time with her family and friends, or travelling, all while drinking a delicious cup of coffee.
