Hadassah

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a pediatric dentist and have been practicing in San Diego for 25 years. I love working with children, but particularly like treating children and adults with disabilities. I met my husband in dental school, and we have been married for 25 years. Our oldest daughter, Melissa, is a sophomore at the University of California, Davis, majoring in animal science, and hoping to become a vet. My younger daughter, Jenna, is currently a senior in high school and is applying to college in order to become a sign language interpreter.

How did you get involved with Hadassah?
Once I finally finished what seemed like years of schooling and joined the working world, I decided that it was time to start giving back to my community. I happened to see an ad in a local Jewish newspaper, advertising a meeting of young women who were interested in volunteering and raising funds for Hadassah hospitals in Israel. As often happens with Hadassah groups, I was asked to take on a leadership role almost from the beginning. Over the years, I have served as treasurer, secretary, and president of my chapter.

What is it about Hadassah that resonates with you?
From the beginning, I have been impressed that Hadassah is almost completely volunteer driven. Because Hadassah is an organization with so few paid staff, almost all the money we raise goes to the projects we fund. As a dentist, I am particularly interested in the science and research that comes out of Hadassah. I’m impressed that, in so many areas, we are at the forefront of medical research.

Share something you would like people to know about you
Many of the women I met that first day at that first Hadassah meeting are still my friends. We've shared Shabbats together, raised our kids together, and become family to each other over the years.
