A vibrant Chicago Jewish ecosystem committed to growth and new ideas.
Lynnley discovered her passion for work with the Jewish community on a post-college Masa trip to Israel. Living in Tel Aviv opened her eyes to the infinite possibilities of living a meaningful Jewish life. Prior to UpStart, Lynnley created immersive experiences for Jewish educators at The iCenter for Israel Education. There, she deepened her skills in program creation, facilitation, and relationship building.
Lynnley earned a BS in Biology from Binghamton University, and an MA in Jewish Professional Studies from the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership.
Lynnley likes to experience the world through food. Whether it’s exploring a new neighborhood restaurant or preparing a meal in her Chicago home for family, Lynnley is always planning her next meal. She loves nothing more than to travel to new places with her husband and to curl up on the couch with her dog.
