We asked our newest board member to answer a few questions so we can get to know her better.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF I’m the Director of Communications for Affton School District. With over 19 years of experience in public relations and communications, I began my career in concert and entertainment marketing before making the shift to school PR six years ago. I serve as the Eastern Director for the Missouri School Public Relations Association and have presented at numerous local, state, and national conferences. My husband, Aaron, is an integral part of the St. Louis music scene with Funky Butt Brass Band. We are long-time Affton residents with our two rowdy boys and are proud to be #afftonstrong.

FAVORITE HOBBIES/PASTIMES As a mom to two young boys, my "free" time is typically spent at ball fields, hockey games, and building LEGOs. But I do like to read when there's a quiet moment.


 Held October General Membership Meeting  Monthly Board of Directors Meeting  Hosted annual Trivia Night.  Held Fallen First Responder Flag Pole Dedication       
