Marla Gamoran Member of the Board of Governors

Marla Gamoran divides her time between New York City and Jerusalem.
Born in Chicago, Marla completed a BA in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Illinois, Champaign and a Masters in Business Administration from DePaul University.  She lived in Israel for two years after completing her BA, for a year on Kibbutz Yahel in the Arava and one year teaching English in the Negev development town of Sderot.
Following a career in non-profit management and workforce development, Marla identified the need for an organization dedicated to serving Jewish baby boomers who wanted to contribute to Israel by volunteering using their skills and experience.  Marla completed the PresenTense Global Fellowship for Social Entrepreneurs in 2010 and soon after ignited her lifelong passion for Israel by establishing Skilled Volunteers for Israel where she serves as Executive Director.

She is a Board member since October 2017.
