Angie Atkins is the Director of Wexner Heritage Alumni. Previously, Angie founded and ran an international jewelry business for 22 years, which manufactured fine designer jewelry in Israel and wholesaled it around the world.  Upon graduating from the Wexner Heritage Program (MetroWest 08), Angie was moved to devote more of her life to giving back to the Jewish world. She joined the Wexner Foundation staff in 2010 as Director, Wexner Heritage Alumni, to help galvanize the already tremendous work of their alumni. Angie’s personal/lay involvement in the Jewish world centers on learning and kiruv (outreach). Along with her husband Norman (also a Wexner Heritage Alum), she regularly hosts Shabbat minyans, seudot (meals), and learning in her home on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The gatherings are unique in that they are trans-denominational, bringing many people together from across the spectrum of Jewish life. Angie serves on the board of Romemu and on the SYNERGY advisory committee at UJA-NY Federation. Angie has a B.A. in English from Yale University and three (more or less) adult children: Zohar, Ari, and Shira.
