Lindsay Kerr

Director of Student Life

is the Director of Student Life at Hillel BC and joined the team in March 2020, just one week before the world shut down! She was born and raised in Winnipeg where she lived until 2017. Graduating from the University of Winnipeg with a BA and BEd, she spent a few years as an elementary school classroom substitute and full-time teacher. The pull from formal to informal education was strong; so strong, in fact, that it took her all the way to Halifax where she was the Director of Hillel and Next Generation Engagement at the Atlantic Jewish Council for 2.5 years before coming to Vancouver. She spent 15 summers at BB Camp Kenora and the next 7 summers leading teen tours for BBYO Passport. In hindsight, informal education was always the winner. This year Lindsay challenged herself to try making one new (for her) recipe per week and she is on track to complete that with a few extra recipes in the bank. She is also a self-designated semiprofessional tv watcher and would love to know what you watch so you can talk about it!
