By Samantha Raizen Walsh, Officer of Advancement & Alumni

Tell us about yourself:

I grew up in Denver, and attended Denver JDS back when it was Herzl and RMHA (Rocky Mountain Hebrew Academy)! After college (Brandeis University) and doing marketing/advertising in a couple of other cities (London and New York City), I found my way back to Denver and began my career in the Jewish nonprofit world. Most recently I worked at the Denver JCC.

Why do you work at Denver JDS?

I love the community here - both from my days as a student, and now! I have so much faith in the school leadership and knew from my earliest conversations with them that everyone is here to help raise and educate our Jewish children. I am so thrilled to be part of that!

Ask me about: (interesting hobbies, etc.)

I enjoy distance running when I have the time for it, as well as spending time with my family - husband Russ, son Avi and daughter Maytal (and don't forget the dogs! Radcliffe and Thurman!)
