Debbie loves working with children of all ages. She spent her early work life teaching Hebrew to elementary school children with special needs at Congregation Kehillath Israel and working as a Unit Head, then Education Director at Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake. She then advised teenagers at New England Young Judaea’s after school programs. She gained her retail and store operations experience as a Store Manager and Management Trainer for Discovery Channel Stores.
