As a “sabra” (born in Jerusalem) but raised in the States, Nurit has always felt a connection to Israel and the region. She is thrilled and honored to combine her background and love for the sport of Ultimate to the Ultimate Peace initiative that she believes is deeply important.
Nurit began playing ultimate in college at Rutgers University. She was deciding between rowing crew, playing rugby or playing ultimate but the ultimate team got her first. After she attended the first practice, she was hooked.
Upon graduating from college Nurit was lured to Boston due largely to the strong ultimate scene. In Boston, Nurit has played for Lady Godiva for 6 years and was fortunate to win 3 UPA nationals with the veteran team. More recently, Nurit has spent the last 3 seasons playing with Brute Squad.
Nurit co/coached the college teams Wellesley Whiptails (2001, 2002) and MIT sMITe (2006,2007). She had to give up coaching when she started grad school and is currently finishing up her MBA at Babson College. She plans to work in marketing with Johnson & Johnson upon graduating.
