Randi Balavram

Program Manager

Randi Balavram grew up in New York and received her B.A. in Psychology from Brooklyn College in 2010. She moved to Los Angeles after graduating college and became very involved in the Pico Jewish Community. Randi has a background in childcare which provided her with the opportunity to work with children with disabilities.  She became interested in working with older individuals with disabilities and their families and therefore joined ETTA as a Life Skills Coach in April 2014. Randi now serves as Program Manager, providing services that enable adults with special needs to live fully enriched and active lives as members of the Los Angeles Jewish Community.
