Assistant Director, Camp JCA Shalom
After her first summer in 2013 as a CIT, Riona fell in love with JCA and never left! Since then, she has worked at camp as a General Counselor, Inclusion Specialist, Job Coach, Unit Head, and Program Director and officially joined the Year-Round Team as a Program Associate in 2019. Before joining the Year-Round Team, Riona worked as a Hebrew school teacher and Madrichim Director at Congregation Tikvat Jacob in Manhattan Beach. Riona and her dog Max love spending their summers in the sun at JCA, and hopes everyone gets a chance to experience the “camp magic” we all know and love!
