BOARD

 

Cara Greenstein, DIRECTOR

Public Relations, dCA

A proud Memphian, Cara is in the business of connecting. While she serves as the engagement associate of ConnecTI, Cara works full-time in public relations and social media at DCA, a Downtown creative communications firm. Her blog Caramelized is named Memphis' Best Blog by Commercial Appeal readers. One wouldn't be surprised to find her cooking in her (or someone else's) kitchen or strolling on South Main.


 

JOSEPH GRUSHKO

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES

Joe, a native New Yorker, moved down in 2016 to work for the Grizzlies Social Responsibility department after graduating from New York University. When he’s not at work you can catch him cheering on the Grizzlies, mentoring local Memphis youth or searching for the best bagel in the city.


 

BAYLEE LESS

KEMMONS WILSON FAMILY FOUNDATION

Baylee works as the Office Administrator for the Kemmons Wilson Family Foundation during the day and as Memphis's unofficial #1 fan around the clock. In her free time, she serves as an adviser for the local BBYO chapter, and contributes to I Love MemphisAtwood Magazine, and EARMILK. She enjoys Asian food, concerts, and being outdoors - most likely at Shelby Farms.


 

MADELINE SPOLIN

EAST HIGH SCHOOL

Originally from San Francisco, Madeline moved to Memphis in 2015 to complete a two-year teaching career at Raleigh Egypt High School through Teach for America. Now a Spanish teacher and soccer coach at East High School, Madeline loves to be outdoors, either as a mentor on the sidelines or a player on the field (usually in competitive ultimate frisbee!).


 

DANIEL SNYDER

FEDEX

A native Mississippian, Daniel hails from Starkville, where he graduated from MSU. He was attracted to Memphis by an engineering role with FedEx Air Operations. After moving to Memphis, Daniel promptly became passionately plugged in to several Jewish communal activities including coaching soccer at the J, substitute teaching Sunday School, serving on the Memphis Hillel Advisory Board, and performing as pianist for Unplugged Shabbat. In his free time, Daniel enjoys cycling, brunching at Brother Junipers, and supporting the Bulldogs and the Dallas Cowboys.
