Danielle R. Feinberg came to OHMA with an undergraduate degree in Linguistic Anthropology from Brandeis University. She first learned about oral history while helping to archive and preserve testimonies of Holocaust survivors for Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation in Los Angeles (now the USC Shoah Foundation Institute). After relocating to New York, and changing careers (which she is very good at doing), Danielle attended culinary school and worked as a pastry chef before joining OHMA’s inaugural cohort. Through OHMA she was able to use oral history to explore and synthesize many of her lifelong interests and pursuits, including, photography, memory, identity, and food. Danielle currently works in the Department of Psychology at Barnard College.
