Shimrit Paley

Shimrit is originally from Newton, Massachusetts, but has spent the last few years in Atlanta, Georgia where she taught first grade for two years in the Teach For America program. She first began playing Ultimate with the Middlebury College Lady Pranksters and more recently played with Ozone in the 2007 and 2008 club seasons. Her mother is an Israeli Kibbutznik and her childhood summers were spent visiting family members and attending camp in Israel. Shimrit is looking forward to taking part in an experience that combines her desire for peace in the region, and of course, Ultimate!
