BBYO Lifer

She has a smile that lights up a room. She laughs easily and often. A petite brunette in jeans and a ponytail, working with teens, she’s easily mistaken for a big sister rather than a mom of three. Given her boundless energy at 43, Rachel Grey Ellis has found the perfect match for her professional and personal skills in her role as Senior Regional Director at BBYO, a position she has held since 2015.

Family Tree

Is there a giving gene? What is it that inspires selfless acts of kindness, and can those be nourished from generation to generation? Meet Dana Burnstein, Lori Taylor and Jordyn Taylor, three generations who share the enterprise of the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic.

Dr. Burnstein was a cardiologist who had a kind heart and a big of dream. In 1997, he started a free clinic in a homeless shelter in Pontiac, Michigan. There, in a space no larger than a closet, he provided care to hundreds of needy and uninsured patients for nearly five years. In 2003, Dr. Burnstein passed away, leaving the legacy of the clinic to his wife, Dana, his son, Ian, and daughter, Lori, along with friends, volunteers, supporters and generous donors. This is their story . . . a story of family, community, caring and giving.
