Amy Altchuler is originally from Rochester, Minnesota, but now calls Houston, Texas home. After graduating with a degree in chemical engineering from Rice University, she moved to Israel to be a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow in Be'er Sheva.
While in Israel she taught at a low-income school, and spent time every week with a Holocaust survivor.
After her life-changing experience in Israel, she moved back to Houston where she now works for a renewable energy company. Outside of work she fills her free time by volunteering at the Houston Food Bank as a volunteer leader. She is also involved with Houston’s Hillel’s young adult group, Jewstontexas.
