Jessica Craven

President
I am the proud mother of 3rd grader Myra-Jean Wodkowski. I have always enjoyed volunteering at MWE— for Safety Valet, Snack Shack, her kid’s teachers, and the Mt. Washington Made Community table. This is my first time on the PTA board. In my “real life” I am a community organizer and fundraiser. I'm also on the board of the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council. I will not be taking pies to the face this year, but will do anything and everything else in my power to ensure that the kids, parents, and teachers of MWE have a fantastic year.

Brandi Miles Moore

Parliamentarian
I've lived in Mount Washington since 1994 and am the proud parent of Emmet, who is a 4th grader. This is my fifth year on the MWPTA board, having served as Secretary, Treasurer, and now Parliamentarian. I love the community of our school and how much the teachers, staff and families genuinely care about our children and each other. I look forward to making each year better for our school than the last.

Patty Hencken

Secretary
I am the mother of Alex, a 1st grader, and Artie, a preschooler. The past two years at the school have been amazing. I especially love the real sense of community when being on campus. Being a working mom, it's been challenging juggling the various commitments in life. I hope by being a part of the PTA this year, I'll be able to get more involved and stay focused on what is truly important in life, which is our kids future. I look forward to meeting more of the individuals in our lovely community this year and giving back in any way I can.

Angela Vawter

VP, Communications
I am pleased to be working as Communications VP this year on your PTA Board. This is my second year as a parent at Mt. Washington Elementary. My son Henry is a first grader now. My husband and I also have a future wolf - 2 1/2 yr. old Josephine. I continue to be impressed by the high standards the school sets as a whole and for it's teachers as models for our kids. After spending last year volunteering in the Kinder "garden", at school events, as a room representative, and organizing a Kinder Yard beautification day, I'm certain our parent community helps inform those high standards in a most meaningful way. Our school is both a positive and powerful place to be, and our family is proud to be a part of it. I'll do my very best to keep all MWE families well informed and encourage everyone to chase those opportunities that help us grow our school and community even stronger for our children.

Sara Skelton

VP, Ways and Means
I moved to LA from the Yukon in Canada to work as a professional drummer. After having kids I shifted my career and I’m now a Realtor with Keller Williams Los Feliz. Joining the PTA is a way to give back and show gratitude for my boys Henry (4) and Tommy (6) being able to attend such an incredible school.

Erica Rosales

VP, Programs
Mt.Washington Elementary is an excellent school because of our involved parent community. I want to provide all children in our school opportunities to engage in meaningful programs that build self awareness, community, while having fun. My oldest daughter culminated from sixth grade last year, Valentina is a fifth grader and Emiliano is a first grader. I look forward to meeting many of you and being of service.

Roberto Viramontes

Treasurer
I’m the proud father of Sebastian, a kindergarten student at Mt. Washington. However, I’ve been involved in education for years: First, as a high school social science teacher, and then I moved on to work on education policy issues. While this is my first time serving in the PTA, I’ve been serving as a board member for small a number of nonprofit organizations focusing on children, youth and education. I grew up in East Los Angeles and attended LAUSD schools all the way through high school. I’m excited for the new school year and for all the great work that lies ahead for the PTA.

Jules Ashborn

Historian
I moved to Mt Washington 10 years ago with my husband Clive, from his hometown of London. I have always enjoyed documenting the world around me from food and landscapes for Southeast Asian travel guides and cookbooks, to the lives of my beautiful children: my 25-year-old stepdaughter Charlie, who lives in Las Vegas, and my son Oliver, who is in 4th grade at Mt. Washington Elementary. Serving as the PTA Historian is the perfect opportunity for me to contribute to the school by photographing and preserving the precious memories of its student body.
