A Massachusetts girl, Paige grew up in Sharon, MA and was heavily involved in her synagogue and regional youth group, USY. She spent summers at JCC Camp Grossman and could most often be found on the basketball court or softball field during the school year.
She received her BA in International Development & Social Change from Clark University, where she was very involved in Hillel, which formed her love for working with young adults in a communal setting. Paige decided to get her MA in Jewish Communal Service from Baltimore Hebrew Institute at Towson University and her Certificate in Non Profit Studies from John Hopkins University, after realizing that her actions and passions were aligned and it just made sense to commit to working in the Jewish world!
Prior to coming to Chicago, Paige worked as the Development Coordinator at Temple Israel NYC, the Harvard Hillel Director of Student Activities, and the Special Project Coordinator at the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. Her experience in multiple Jewish communal roles has shown her the value of a close-knit and meaningful community, having worked directly with dynamic lay leaders and staff.
In addition to her role at the Silverstein Base Hillel, Paige is also the Assistant Director at UChicago Hillel. An avid follower of all things kicking, she spends her free time kickboxing and playing on a kickball team. She is excited to be working in Megan’s home town of Chicago as she’s been told by everyone that she meets that it’s the best place to live!
