My first year at camp was at 2001 right after my army service. It was a wonderful experience that influenced me in many ways. I came back for 4 more summers as a dance instructor and my younger brother spent 2 out of 4 summers in camp with me. Camp Ramah in Wisconsin was my first introduction with summer camps and it was magical. 

I grew up in Herzlia. In the army I was a commander at the Gadna (Youth Battalions) training and preparing youth for military service.   

Today I am a lawyer, married to Daniel (who made Aliya from Brazil), and a mother of Hillel, Nina and Adam. I have been dancing for my entire life and have been teaching salsa and Latin American dances for the last 18 years. I am also a Pilates instructor and studied at the Wingate Institute.
