We like to think that our team is pretty big. If you participate in or lead an Ask Big Questions conversation, you're part of the Ask Big Questions team. Our professional team includes campus advisors, Hillel Schusterman International Center staff, student fellows and representatives from the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust.
From 2007-2011, Sheila served as Hillel's Assistant Director at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She was awarded the prestigious Richard M.

Sheila's favorite Big Q is "What do we choose to ignore?"
