President | Nan Nan Liu-Maffetone
Meet Nan Nan
Nan Nan and her husband moved to Seattle in 2007 and has since made the Pacific Northwest their home. They have a Fifth Grader at Fernwood and a former Panther at Skyview. Because both of her children have thrived at Fernwood, Nan Nan felt motivated to step up to serve as a Board Member. This is her fourth and final year on the Board. She will miss the Fernwood community very much.
Nan Nan's qualifications include experiences as a part of agile development teams, digital marketing and now a real estate professional. Service-wise, she has served in various officer positions in a nonprofit called Toastmasters International that helps members develop leadership skills. She aims to leverage her experiences to add value to the PTSA.
As the 2023-24 President, her priority is to strengthen the communication channels between the school, the parent community and other local supporters of the PTSA, in order to ensure that every voice is heard and every opinion is valued.
#EveyChildOneVoice is the PTSA's motto; and the President must lead the way to uphold and honor it. Lucky for Nan Nan, she has a strong and dedicated team beside her. Rest assured, Fernwood, the Board is confident that this year will be one of the best to come.
