Co-PresidentElizabeth M.
I am excited to be a part of the Field PTO executive board this year and really look forward to working with these smart, talented ladies.  My husband, Andrew, and I have three children; a sophomore son at Maine South, a 7th grade daughter at Emerson, and a 4th grade son here at Field.  We have lived in Park Ridge for 10 years and have been a part of the Field Community for just as long.  I have enjoyed being involved with the PTO since we came to Field 10 years ago; through being a room parent, co-chairing the Service Committee, decorating PTO bulletin boards, volunteering to coach Follies, participating in VShow, hosting tables at the Cultural Fair, helping with 5th grade Promotion parties, and probably more activities that I'm forgetting about over the years.  I am excited to be able to put my experiences at Field to use while serving on the PTO board.


Co-PresidentKristin O.

I am excited to be joining the PTO Executive Board again this year.  My husband, John, and I have two daughters at Field, a third grader and a first grader.  When I’m not running around the playground with my kids or walking our energetic puppy 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.  I also help to lead the third grade Brownie troop and first grade Daisy troop.


Co-Vice PresidentRenalin M.
It is such a great pleasure and tremendous honor to serve in my second year as Vice 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 third 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 third graders as well, founded when the girls were kindergarteners.

Born and raised in the Philippines, I moved to the US 16 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).

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 where you will most likely see my husband and I walking an unruly dachshund.   I have three kiddos, with my youngest entering third grade (and my last one 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.  I've been a room mom every year and in the past have helped with events like school carnival and trunk or treat.   


TreasurerNicole H.

I'm excited to be back as Treasurer this year, and looking forward to working with this year's Board! Last year, I also helped with Dine to Donate events and the School Supply committee. We've lived in Park Ridge for just 6 years, and in 2022-2023, we'll have a 2nd grader and a kindergartner. Looking forward to the full-day K experience! I work in health policy for a consulting company and have been involved with several nonprofit 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 rec sports for one or both of the kids!
