Whitney Fisch, Executive Director

Whitney started her career in Jewish communal work in 2003 as the Director of Jewish Student Life at the University of Georgia and moved to Chicago in 2004 to begin work as the Graduate and Young Professional Program Director for the Hillels of Illinois. During her time as a Hillel professional, she was able to take advantage of living and learning in Israel for a summer through Hillel’s partnership with the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies.

Upon completion of her year at Pardes, Whitney was back in Ann Arbor as a Master’s student at the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work. Whitney's studies focused on community organizing with children and youth and she subsequently spent the last 10 years working in Jewish day schools as a school counselor and education administrator. Before taking on her role at Hillel at Miami University, Whitney was the Director of Health and Wellness at Milken Community Schools in Los Angeles. Her personal and professional goals in life have always led from the proactive--she wants to create structures, programs, and systems that allow young people to not only survive but to thrive and she wants to do so while role modeling the leadership and thoughtful communication that she hopes to cultivate in the young people she serves.
