Director of Development

Sanaz hails from nine years of experience supporting strategic partnerships, fund development, and managing donor events and galas at AISH LA. Following her passion for education, Sanaz took a small hiatus from the non-profit world and earned a master's degree in sociology - focusing on education. Sanaz then worked for Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce/UNITE-LA, leading a vast portfolio of research and evaluation efforts of the organization's programmatic, systems change, and policy work.

Sanaz is thrilled to embark on the Director of Development role at Shalhevet, merging her passion for Jewish education alongside her demonstrated success in the non-profit space. She is inspired by Shalhevet's dedication to the values of Judaism while uplifting secular education. Sanaz looks forward to building relationships with the faculty, staff, students, parents, and community.
