After working for years as a successful entrepreneur, Rebecca switched gears and moved into the non-profit realm, where she enjoys building organizations for people in need. Over the last 12 years, Rebecca has founded two non-profit schools; The Imagine Academy for Autism and The Yeshiva Prep High School for children with mild learning challenges.
Additionally, Rebecca recently finished her tenure as the Founding Executive Director of the Moise Safra Community Center, where she raised over $25 million for the construction of a new, state-of-the-art building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Rebecca’s current focus has been to build support and found an organization that benefits women seeking to join the work force. Rebecca is The Propel Network’s Founding Executive Director.
Today, Rebecca sits on the Board of Directors for all four organizations.
Rebecca is also the mother of six wonderful children, and a grandmother. She and her husband of 34 years live in NYC.
