She is an expert in urban development and focuses on the identification of economic strengths while incorporating the financial, digital, tourism, and creative forces in Tel Aviv. While leading the Global & Tourism administration, the Startup City vision was formed, which is a municipal strategic plan for investors, entrepreneurs, tourists, and students coupling a city platform with a private initiative.
