DIRECTOR OF JEWISH STUDENT LIFE
Zach is a former student of The University of Oklahoma and our Hillel so this feels like finally returning back home. He received a Master's in Human Relations, guiding him towards a passion for higher education, specifically that in student life and student affairs. He loves working with students and his goal is to make sure you all feel heard, have a safe space, and know that he's always a listening ear.
Zach is here to help make sure your time with Hillel is impactful, engaging, purposeful, and fun! Hillel served as a place for him to further discover his Jewish identity, make life-long friendships, and feel connected to something bigger than himself. In his free time, he loves producing and recording music (80’s music and movies), skateboarding, spending time with his fiancé, Andy, and relaxing with their fur children, Louie, Frankie, and Athena. He is looking forward to meeting each and every one of you!
Andrew is a current graduate student at the University of Central Oklahoma studying Counseling Psychology. He received his Bachelor’s in Psychology with a minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Andrew has presented at international and national conferences with emphasis on Psychology and Religious studies. He also served in the Oklahoma Army National Guard for five years as a musician. He has a passion for connecting and engaging with students to develop the best platform for them to succeed as professionals.
Andrew is inspired to encourage students to have a meaningful and impactful Hillel experience! Hillel has always been a place where Andrew has been able to deepen his connection to Judaism, develop meaningful friendships, and learn from each student who has walked through the doors. In Andrew’s free time, he loves playing video games, being out in nature, and spending time with his partner, Alexis while they play with their fur children Coco, Spike, Pollock, and Willow. He is thrilled to meet and connect with all of you!
