I am Amara Levine-Reich, a native Memphian now in my sixth (and hopefully final) semester of the master’s program in journalism at the University of Memphis. I’ve been taking the slow track because I also work full-time as a communications specialist at Sedgwick Claims Management Services, based here in Memphis. (Yay for tuition reimbursement!)
I moved back to Memphis in 2007 after being away from home for about 10 years. During that time I studied abroad in Israel for a year, earned a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Pennsylvania, and worked in NYC for a small PR firm specializing in non-profit organizations. It was through a co-worker at that job that I met my wonderful husband Eli, a clinical psychologist.
My interests outside of work and school include being Jewish, seeing new places, and all things Law and Order.
