Meet Our Board
Here are our elected officers:
This is our family’s 4th year at Towne Meadows Elementary and we love it!! I began volunteering with the Wolf Pack in 2021. This year I am the President of the Wolfpack. I currently have both my girls here at TM, one in 1st grade and another in 3rd grade. Our family moved to 3 years ago from Maryland and could not love AZ more! I have a BS in Marketing from Salisbury University and am an Account Manager for an environmental sustainability software company. In my free time I love to work out, craft and spend time with my family and friends. As a family we have a love for the outdoors, camping and traveling, I am excited to serve on the board this year and really make a difference with our kids and TM community.
I am so excited to start our third year here at TM. This is my second year on the PTO board and I can’t wait to meet our TM families and students. My husband and I have two children. Our 9-year-old is in 4rd grade here at TM and our 5-year-old is in Pre-K at Carol Rae. I am an ASU alumna, and I am a Program Manager at one of Arizona’s largest nonprofits that services children with various disabilities and development delays, as well as children in the foster care system. Our family loves TM and we are excited for this new school year!
Lance is the busy father of a busy family in our busy and bustling Towne Meadows community. He has 6 kids in Highland Schools from grade 12 to 1st; three of them are here at Towne Meadows. He is a chiropractic physician with two offices that he splits his time at and is always running around trying to help as many people as he can. This is his second year on the PTO at Towne Meadows and is Co-VP this year. His wife Emali is a music teacher currently working in Mesa. He is excited to get more involved in our school and hopes to bring more men and Dad’s helping at our school.
This is our second year at Towne Meadows, my first year in the PTO. We have kids in kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 6th grade at Towne. Our daughter loves softball so most of our free time is spent at practices and games. We enjoy vacationing in southern California, especially Disneyland. We have a wild goldendoodle named Cooper and a bunny named Sugar. My husband and I attended Purdue University. We moved here as soon as I graduated to get away from the gloomy Midwest! I work as a NICU nurse at Phoenix Children's taking care of some of the most complex babies in the state. I love that my job gives me flexibility to be able to spend time helping at school too. I also work with the Gifted Identified Family and Teacher Support group through GPS. My hope is to be an advocate for the families in the gifted program within Towne and the district. Towne is a special school, and I am excited to join the team!
