“I am excited to take on a leadership role with the House in co-chairing Gamechangers. I have been attending House events for years and find the Gamechangers program provides a great opportunity to learn from successful role models about how to balance success in the workplace, in the community and in their personal lives. I look forward to continuing to build on the success of Gamechangers and that of The House which continues to be one of the most instrumental and impactful organizations to the Toronto Jewish community.”
