2023-2024 Board Members
These board members are volunteers and are dedicated to providing you the support you need.
We're glad you're here! The OBPTO is a volunteer organization and we represent ALL families at Old Bonhomme. Your voice matters and your participation in the OBPTO makes a difference for all of the children of Old Bonhomme. The OBPTO funds field trips, class parties, social events for families, teacher mini-grants, technology, and much more. Our volunteers also give their time helping out in classrooms, planning and staffing events, and spreading love to the amazing staff at OB.
We welcome all parents and guardians to be actively involved, either by volunteering for an event or committee or by making a tax-deductible annual contribution.
We look forward to a fantastic school year together with your input and participation!
-The OBPTO Board
Jennifer Tuttle, Co-President
I am entering my first full year serving as co-president, and I'm so excited to take on this important role. I started on the board as Corresponding Secretary when my son was in kindergarten, and I most recently completed a three-year term as VP of Fundraising. Now, my son will be moving into the 5th Grade Center and my daughter will be in second grade. I love being involved in the OB community and am looking forward to another fantastic year.
Tanya Hamilton, Co-President
I am the parent of an amazing Old Bonhomme first grader. As Co-President of the Board, I am excited to serve and support our school. In addition to the OBPTO, I serve as a Trustee on my neighborhood Association Board and as a member on the St. Louis Association of Realtors Professional Standards committee. When I’m not working as full-time real-estate agent, I love to travel, spend time outdoors and go on new adventures with my daughter.
Lindsay Suk, VP Fundraising
My name is Lindsay Suk, and I’m so happy to be serving as your VP of fundraising this year!
My husband Will and I have two children, Ellie (10), and Kingston (7, second grade at OB). They keep me very busy (chauffeuring, usually!), but I still feel that it’s so important to donate my time back to their schools.
I can’t wait to get to know everyone as we get started on another fantastic school year!
Jess Lee, VP Events
Hello! I have two amazing kids: my daughter is an incoming kindergartener, and my son will be in kindergarten for the ’24-’25 school year. This will be my first year on the OBPTO Board, and I am excited to participate with and enhance our Old Bonhomme Community! In addition to working full time as a healthcare insurance compliance officer, I enjoy hiking with my family, watching cheesy horror movies, and hanging out with friends.
Julie Hartell DeNardo, Co-Treasurer
We have a third grade and a kindergarten student at Old Bonhomme this year. We are an active, outdoor, adventurous family that loves our Olivette Community and wonderful public elementary school. This is my first year actively involved in the PTO and as co-treasurer. I also enjoy helping with the school garden. I look forward to helping the PTO provide great opportunities for students and to support OB teachers in their important work. Before the pandemic I was a zoological professional at the St. Louis Zoo and can still be seen on videos playing at the polar bear habitat.
Kathy Turner, Co-Treasurer
I attended Ladue Schools (OB class of '93, LHWHS class of '00!) , and am a mom of two beautiful kids (girl OB, boy LECC).I 'm a registered nurse but currently I stay home with the kids and am primary caregiver for both of my parents. In addition to the PTO, I serve as a trustee of the Chevy Chase neighborhood, volunteer at LECC, and canvas for local elections. Now more than ever, I believe reinforcing our community is crucial and I'm happy to serve when and how I can. I enjoy reading, writing, exercising, and I'm a political junkie!
Renee Phillips, Corresponding Secretary
I have two rambunctious, fun-loving boys. One just graduated from Old Bonhomme after 5 amazing years. But his little brother will be going into 1st grade in the 23-24 school year so we get to do it all over again. I'm so proud to be a part of our community and school. Design and travel lover. Bad but enthusiastic dancer. Side hustles include chauffeur to too many children's sports and activities to enumerate (why are there so many?), painting and home design. Professionally I've been in Marketing including brand design, voice, art direction and communications which I lean on when supporting Old Bonhomme. Best bribed by tacos and happy hours.
Sara Raj, Recording Secretary
My family lives in Olivette and will have both of our girls attending OBE in the fall (2nd grade and a kindergartner). We love the OBE community and the amazing families we’ve met so far and the teachers that give their to the kiddos. Besides my job as a mom, I also work in Human Resources full time, and try to spend as much free time with the girls and my husband hiking, baking, cooking, and crafting.
Jennifer Scissors, Parent District Council
I have 3 boys, with my youngest at OB. I work full time, but in my free time I enjoy early morning workouts, traveling and being with friends! I’m also a board member for NCJW and have been a Co-Chair of the NCJW Back to School Store for the last five years and counting. I’m very excited to be on the PTO as a PDC Rep this year!
