Sierra Meszaros, Regional Advisor, NFTY Central West (CWR)
Sierra is excited to join the NFTY CWR and Camp Newman Family, as the NFTY CWR Regional Advisor. Sierra is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, where she grew up as a member of BATY at Congregation Beth Am in Los Altos Hills, but in recent years has come to call the small Northern Nevada town of Genoa her new home town. Sierra is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, earning her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, where she was recognized for her success in the social sciences.
Sierra has long had a passion for the Jewish community which has manifested itself in various ways over the years, beginning as a TYG member, later becoming a youth educator, and TYG advisor. She has been fortunate to see first-hand the power of the NFTY community, watching teens flourish in a community where they feel seen and heard, challenged yet inspired. She is beyond grateful for the opportunity to work with a team of impassioned magic makers and educators to continue to motivate and inspire this incredible group of young people to be role models for their families, communities, and most importantly each other.
