Previously, Rana worked for 10 years in tourism doing operations and reservations. Rana holds a certificate in Human Resources and Administrative Assistant, and a vocational certificate in handicrafts. She also started and owns her own small business. Rana is a board member at Hoqoqona ‘our Rights’ NGO. After October 7th, 2023, she decided to change careers and find a job working in peacebuilding. She is a mother of two daughters and believes in creating a better future for the region. 

Susan brings a depth of experience in nonprofit management, organizational development, and regional conflict education. She previously worked as National Executive Director for NA’AMAT USA, a national social and service organization providing support for women and youth of all backgrounds in Israel. Prior to NA’AMAT, she was the Director at UC Irvine of the Olive Tree Initiative.
