Laureen Waterman, Interim Executive Director & Business Manager

I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley.  I am a single mother with two beautiful children, Matt 29 and Lacey 28.  Kol Tikvah has been my passion for over 7 years.  I joined Kol Tikvah in 2007 and jumped in with both feet.  Before I knew it I was rooked in to serving on the Board beginning in 2008.  I retired from the working world in 2010 and somehow I ended up as Temple President. I say this lovingly as I enjoyed every minute of my two year term.  During this time I was able to meet all the congregants and developed personal relationships with many.  The congregants have become my extended family and I love spending time at the temple. So much so that I am now gainfully employed by Kol Tikvah as the Business Manager, Interim Executive Director, and I love my jobs!
