Carisa has been a part of the JCC team since 2000, mostly in the role of Development Director. She did take two brief breaks from this role to serve as the JCC Maccabi Games Director when San Antonio hosted in 2005 and 2009. Carisa enjoys her job immensely, especially since she can walk out of her office door and see many of the JCC's program areas in action on a daily basis.
- Best JCC Moment: There are many great moments that I could list, although two of the top moments are Opening Ceremonies at the 2005 and 2009 Games.
- Hobby I'm Passionate About: I love to run. Whether two miles or twelve miles, that time with myself helps me refocus and re-energize!
