Rayla Claypool

Position: Events & Operations Manager

Rayla is our Events and Operations Manager. She comes from a background as a producer in local news, which gives her all the right skills to make sure everything going on at Hillel runs smoothly. Rayla came to Hillel while she was studying at West Virginia University and couldn’t be more excited to be back at Hillel, this time at Michigan. She grew up in Pittsburgh, but she came to love Michigan after spending summers up north exploring the state with her fiancé Nick and German Shepard/Husky mix Orion. In her spare time, Rayla loves to hike and camp with Nick and Orion, play Dungeons and Dragons, and make crafts of various kinds.
