Meet the Board

President: Veronica Messer

Vice Presidents: Emily MacDonald Ramirez

My name is Emily MacDonald and I’m the mother of two wonderful girls ages three and one.  I attended a parent participation preschool as a child and decided to enroll my older daughter in WPNS.  Becoming part of WPNS has introduced me to a wonderful group of parents and alumni who care about the school, in addition to meeting members of the community interested in supporting the school.  I am grateful for this opportunity to serve and love being part of Woodland Parent Nursery School.

Treasurer: Carol Barnett

Carol Barnett

Carol has been a WPNS member since 2001 and serves as the school’s bookkeeper. She was the treasurer during the years that her daughter, who is currently in college, attended the preschool program, and was asked to return to the position a year later. In addition to WPNS, she is the current or past treasurer for several other local non-profit organizations, including the WPNS Alumni Association. When not playing with numbers, Carol plays with yarn. She almost always has at least one knitting project on the needles.

Treasurer Liaison: Mari Penley

Mother of two boys and WPNS alumni. This is my third year as a WPNS parent and my second year on the Board. I’m the owner/designer at Almond Blossom Studios. My favorite things about being at a parent participation school are watching my kids learn and grown and getting to know my fellow parents.
