Chenelle combines the best qualities when it comes to her role as the Director of Membership Sales. Her outgoing and warm personality is engaging and her fitness background brings experience and knowledge. Prior to joining the staff of the Shames JCC, Chenelle worked for such fitness organizations as the New York City Road Runners and Tough Mudder (a world-wide, hard core obstacle course ) as an event manager. While producing these large scale events, she was noted for connecting to the attendees to shape their positive experience.
Chenelle says that working for the Shames JCC has furnished her with the opportunity to learn and appreciate Jewish culture and traditions. As the person in charge of membership, she has interfaced with a majority of the J’s thousands of members, and she is most impressed by the warm and diverse culture that she found here. Her goals for this year are two-fold: To increase membership and bring greater awareness of the J’s dynamic programs to the broader community. And, to make sure that current members have the most enjoyable and positive experience possible.
