The Gesher Galicia Board of Directors is happy to welcome Darcy Stamler as our newest member of the Board.
Darcy Stamler has been researching her family’s history since 2010, an endeavor that started with a ship manifest from Ellis Island and the subsequent settlement of Galician-born grandparents in New York’s Lower East Side, and which led in 2018 to the surprising discovery of an extensive line of family members in Israel. In recent years she has become actively engaged in Jewish heritage preservation projects in Ukraine which included spearheading the building of a monument to the victims of a mass shooting in Mykulychyn, one of her ancestral hometowns in the Nadworna region.
Darcy was born in New York and has also lived primarily in Northern California, Washington DC, and Los Angeles. Her professional career has included management positions at several large
entertainment and media companies, and she has owned and operated a Los Angeles-based marketing agency since 2004. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at
Los Angeles, and a master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
Please join us in welcoming Darcy to the Board and in wishing her success in her new role.
Dr. Steven S. Turner
President, Gesher Galicia
