Rachel Gali Cinamon is Full Professor at Tel Aviv University, Israel, where she serves as head of the Career Development Lab, and the post muster career-counseling program, as well as the School of Education. Born and raised in Israel, she attended Bar Ilan University where she obtained her PhD. Her research interests focus on career development of women, minorities and at risk populations, work–family relations through the life span, future plans and perceptions, and career interventions. Her research group involves several university–community partnerships that focus on career interventions in high schools and in civic organizations.  Cinamon developed a special and unique career intervention model that emphasizes the importance of being involved in four major roles in order to increase well-being and life satisfaction: work, family, community, and leisure. Her work is driven by her deep commitment to human development and by her belief in her social responsibility for individuals’ health, well-being, and meaningful life. She is a mother of three children, a spouse, a friend, and a long-distance runner.
