Alyssa is so excited to be joining the Onward Israel team as the New York and Camp Counselor Program coordinator! From Connecticut, Alyssa graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with degrees in Human Development & Family Studies and Communications. As an alumna of the Camp Counselor Program, Alyssa looks forward to helping future participants engage in meaningful experiences in Israel. She credits her own Onward Israel internship, working in development at a nonprofit in Jerusalem, with inspiring her to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector. Alyssa’s experiences in the Jewish community come from involvement at Hillel, Chabad and fifteen summers at Jewish Camp. In her spare time, you can find Alyssa on her Peloton bike, walking her dog Lola, or eating mint chip ice cream.
