Maya Kovach, UCLA
Maya is originally from Albany, NY and has an intense passion for northeastern Fall foliage and cider doughnuts. After receiving bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry and Mathematics and a master's degree in Entrepreneurship from the University of Rochester, she followed her nice Jewish boy to LA to pursue a career in the startup community on the shores of the "Silicon Beach". Maya is now in her second year as the Springboard Innovation Fellow at Hillel at UCLA, and facilitating JLF is one of her favorite parts of her job. Get in touch with Maya if you want to hear her talk your ear off about the new Leadership curriculum she developed, if you think deep Jewish learning is for every Jewish soul, or if you know of the best place to get ice cream in Los Angeles.
