Associate Director & Chief Financial Officer
As a camper, Janet had the amazing overnight camp experiences of living in a tent for the summer (a bit different than Camp Zeke’s accommodations!), swimming in the lake, canoeing on the Delaware River, and joining the community Shabbat celebration. Years later, Janet’s three children enjoyed their time as overnight campers and then experienced their first jobs as counselors, developing lifelong friendships and leadership skills in the process.
A strong believer in the transformative power of the Jewish camp experience, Janet has been part of Jewish overnight camping for over two decades. At her prior camp, Janet began as a member of the summer office staff, became the year-round Chief Operating Officer, and then served in the capacity of Executive Director for multiple years.
Prior to working full-time in camp, Janet provided technology instruction and support for staff and students at her local Solomon Schechter Day School. Most recently, she served as the interim Executive Director of a not-for-profit organization running technical conferences.
Janet is excited to return to her overnight camp roots and join the amazing Camp Zeke team, helping to grow the organization into its second decade.
Janet holds an undergraduate business degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Having grown up at the Jersey shore in West Deal, she and her husband, Arthur, now live in East Brunswick, NJ.
Janet is on the Board of Trustees of the AIFS Foundation, supporting cultural exchange and study abroad programs. She enjoys trying out new technology applications, long nature walks, the daily crossword puzzle and Wordle.
