Hi, I'm Chloe! My work is designing and facilitating transformative group experiences. I love building worlds where people can connect, make meaning, and feel they really belong.

After graduating from Carleton College with a B.A. in Religion, I trained as a community organizer with JOIN for Justice in Boston, and led immersive youth programs at The Food Project, a food justice and youth organization. At Urban Adamah in Berkeley, CA, I served as Fellowship Director, leading semester-long, residential deep dives into sustainability, justice, mindfulness, and Jewish spirituality for cohorts of young adults. After a year of intense personal loss, I was moved to learn how to support others in grief, and completed a chaplaincy residency at UCSF Mission Bay Hospital, where I earned 3 units of CPE. I currently run immersive "grief retreats" for young adults who've lost parents, siblings, partners, and friends and steward the COVID Grief Network, a mutual aid project. I have led prayer and mindfulness services, educational workshops, and retreats for organizations like FoodCorps, The Dinner Party, Wilderness Torah, Urban Adamah, JOIN for Justice, Let My People Sing!, the Jewish Studio Project, and others.

Currently, I am finishing an Ed.M. in Specialized Studies from Harvard, where I study what transformative group experiences are made of. I will soon start a rabbinical school at Hebrew Union College.
