Alissandra Aronow, Vice-Chair
Alissandra Elizabeth Aronow is a former international ice dancer. After retiring from competitive skating, she went back to school and is receiving a bachelor’s degree in History of Art from the University of Michigan.
Alissandra served as a NextGen Co-Chair of the Max. M and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation from 2015-2017, where she worked with her cousins to create more family service opportunities and NextGen engagement. Alissandra is currently on the Junior Board of the Endometriosis Foundation of America and serves as Vice President of the board of trustees for the Lovelight Foundation. She is a founding Co-Chair of Figure Skating in Detroit; a youth development program that includes figure skating, tutoring, the STEM program and leadership development. The program is the first expansion of the 20-year-old program in New York called Figure Skating in Harlem, which has proved to be a success. Alissandra has worked closely with a small team over the past year to launch the same after school program in Detroit.
In addition, she is also working with the Executive Director of the Brightmoor Alliance to create a leadership development program for high school students in Brightmoor. The leadership development program is meant to create a sustainable program that will contribute to creating a succession plan of leadership within the Brightmoor community.
