Why I Serve on the JPro Board:
We spend more of our waking hours working than doing anything else. So, shouldn't we spend that time on something that we LOVE, that fulfills us, and nurtures us back - being a Jewish professional has done that for me! Serving on the JPro board give me an opportunity to ensure that wherever you work Jewishly, at whatever career stage you're in - you feel nurtured, fulfilled, and are doing something you LOVE.
