Co-President: Kristin O.
I am excited to be joining the PTO Executive Board again this year. My husband and I have two daughters at Field, a fourth grader and a second grader. When I’m not running around the playground with my kids or walking our energetic dog around our neighborhood, I work as an attorney in the commercial real estate space. I first became part of the Field School community as a student many years ago and I’m happy to be back as a parent and a member of this dedicated and talented group. My prior experience with the PTO includes serving as a room mom, helping to coach Field Follies, singing off-key in V Show, and participating in Trunk or Treat.
Co-President: Renalin L.
It is such a great pleasure and tremendous honor to serve as Co-President of the Field PTO Executive Board. My husband, Frank (Park Ridge-born and Niles-raised), and I feel incredibly blessed to be part of the Field community through our daughter, Jayme Renae, currently in fourth grade. As soon as she started preschool, I knew early on how my involvement as a parent is highly crucial toward her overall educational experience, thus began volunteering as a Room Parent. From helping host and coordinate fun classroom parties, to serving as a liaison between the parents, teachers, and administration, I truly enjoyed the activities and wanted to further contribute at a higher level and broader scope. Both Kristin (Co-President) and I are Co-Leaders of Field’s Girl Scouts Brownie troop of fourth graders as well, founded when the girls were kindergarteners.
Born and raised in the Philippines, I moved to the US 17 years ago and have been blessed with opportunities to work in various roles and industries — from being a flight attendant to an Executive Assistant and now as Senior Director of Events and Operations for an international medical association. My family and I love to travel, watch movies, try new restaurants, and spend an exorbitant amount of time with a "small" group of 20 of our closest family and friends. I am humbled to serve on the Board of Directors as well of Compass to Care, a not-for-profit organization, founded by a childhood cancer survivor and Park Ridge-resident, to provide free Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) solution to access life-saving cancer treatment and clinical trials for children fighting cancer and facing poverty or cancer-related financial toxicity (CRFT).
Co-Vice President: Nicole H.
I'm excited to be back as Co-Vice President this year and looking forward to working with this year's Board! I served as Treasurer for 2 years before moving into this role, and also planned Dine-to-Donate events and supported the School Supply fundraiser. We've lived in Park Ridge since 2017, and this year we'll have 3rd and 1st graders. I work in health policy for a consulting company and have been involved with several non-profit Boards/organizations previously. My husband and I love to travel (with and without kids!), I’m an avid reader, and our weekends are usually taken up by sports for one or both of the kids!
Co-Vice President: Megan E.
Hello! I am new to the Board this year and thrilled to be here! I am an elementary teacher in a nearby suburb and have a child in 4th grade. I have been involved in Follies, V Show, Trunk or Treat and also coach park district sports. My goal is to increase community involvement with PTO events through membership and volunteer opportunities; I have met so many wonderful friends through PTO events and love to connect people.
Co-Secretary: Angie B.

Happy to be here! I was born in Chicago (Jeff Park) and have lived in the Niles/Park Ridge area for 15 years. We currently live in Uptown Park Ridge where you will most likely see my husband and I walking two unruly dachshunds. I have three kiddos, with my youngest at Field. I spend my days running corporate communications for a tech company and I love that I can use my background to help the PTO and our school.
Treasurer: Amy G.
Hi! Nice to meet you! I am new to the Board this year and thrilled to be more involved in the Field community! My husband, Dino, and I have three boys - second and fourth grade boys at Field, as well as a little guy in pre-k (who will be joining Field next year!). We have been in Park Ridge for the past 8 years, previously having lived in the Norwood Park area. I have spent my career in accounting and finance, and currently work at a family office for high net worth individuals. My family loves to travel (especially to Hilton Head Island and Disney), stop by Rita's for a treat, and play all the baseball and basketball. I love that I can use my background to help the PTO and our school!
