Amateur DIYer. Board Game Enthusiast. Day Dreamer.
Ariel is the Senior Educator at Base WSTWD.
Ariel was born and raised in Berkeley, CA - and even though she now lives in Los Angeles, she will always be a Bay Area girl at heart. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and International Relations from UC Santa Barbara, Ariel moved to Israel for a year to complete a shanat sheirut, a year of service for the country. Living in several cities in the periphery of Israel, she worked with a variety of youth in both formal and informal educational settings.
Upon returning to California, Ariel has spent the past several years working in the Jewish communal field with organizations such as the Jewish Federation, local synagogues, preschools, and BBYO. Currently, she works as Director of Community Engagement for BBYO's Western States, engaging and involving the non-teen audience with the wonderful work of BBYO.
Ariel is a proud mama of her son, Lev (and dog, Yofi). In her spare time Ariel loves baking, attempting to craft, hiking and eating her way through Los Angeles. She'll also never say no to a good game - Scrabble, Ticket to Ride, Taboo - you name it, and she'll play it!
