Welcome to our new Executive Director, Ashley Carol-Fingerhut
Dear friends, family, and community members,
We are pleased to announce the hiring of Ashley Carol-Fingerhut as the new Executive Director at the Louis Schulman Iowa Hillel. Ashley joins our Hillel community at a pivotal time to help us achieve even greater success for our undergraduates and community as a whole. Prior to her starting in June, she worked for The Nature Conservancy, a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. There, Ashley provided overall support to ensure the achievement of Illinois' fundraising goals each fiscal year. Additionally, she served as the Young and Emerging Professionals [YEP] employee resource group ambassador and helped foster a culture of professional development through "YEP Talks" with senior leaders and trustees. Taking her passion for the environment local, Ashley served as the youngest board member of Go Green Wilmette, a community environmental organization. She also served as the alumni ambassador for the Chicago Chapter of Washington College. Back in college, Ashley worked collaboratively with the President's Office to create a Hillel house on campus so that students would have a place to gather, celebrate Jewish holidays, and prepare kosher meals. She remains involved with the Jewish sleep-away camp, Beber Camp in Mukwonago, Wisc., which she attended as a child growing up in Skokie, Illinois. We look forward to the years to come with Ashley leading the way.
At this time of transition, we ask for your support. Please help us welcome Ashley to our community by visiting our website. To welcome Ashley to the team, please send emails to Ashley@iowahillel.org or visit the Hillel house. We look forward to an amazing school and thank you for your partnership in making that happen.
President of the Board of Directors
