Executive Board Bios | 2022-2023

June Yang, President

We love this Mt. Washington community so much and are thrilled to have the opportunity to help enrich it even further. We have met some wonderful lifelong friends from this community and could not feel luckier. By day, I’m an attorney / certified public accountant, but by night, I get to be the mom to a sweet and toy-obsessed boy named Wyatt, who is the love of our lives.


Selena Tuntland, Communications Chair

Hi, Mt. Washington! I'm mom to Kai, in 5th grade, and Odin, who's a high-schooler now! We've been at Mt. Washington since Odin was in Kindergarten and have loved being part of this community. I've been on the communications team for the past couple of years and I'm looking forward to another great year.

Betty Norheim, Programs Chair 

Hello Mt. Washington Families! I'm the mother of Loma (5th grade) and Magnus (3rd grade), as well as Aleah (7th grade) who previously attended and LOVED MWE, and our fun-loving Akita, Toko.


My husband, Neiel, and I both grew up in the Los Angeles area. I love to hike, cook, garden, and travel.


I'm excited for this school year and look forward to working together with you and your families. Please feel free to reach out!


Soo Ran Kim, Fundraising Chair

Hello Mt.Washington! I'm the mother of Finn (4th grade) and Aidan (6th grade) who previously attended Mt.Washington. I'm excited to volunteer for this school year and looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Mike Kopera, Volunteers Chair

Hello Mt. Washington! I'm the father of Jacob (4th grade) and Sophie (2nd grade) and have constantly changing facial hair.  


I grew up in Troy, Michigan, where I played soccer, caught grasshoppers, and impersonated Elvis. My favorite food is guacamole and I appreciate good grammar and active verbs.


For all things volunteer this year, I'll always be near to lend an ear. (dad rhymes)


Nicole Vexler, Treasurer

Hello Mt. Washington Community! My name is Nicole and I’m the proud mom of Charlie, who will be in 2nd grade this year. I’m excited to volunteer as the treasurer and contribute to this wonderful school community. I’m looking forward to this year, to all the fun events, incredible programs and getting to know Charlie’s school mates and their families!

Laurel Dickow, Membership Chair

Hello Mt. Washington! My fam and I are happy members of the MWE community with kiddos Lucy (1st) and Miles (TK). We’re a big Museum loving and theater making family. I serve as the Director of Programs & Community Engagement at the Natural History Museum and really look forward to meeting you all! Interested in becoming a PTA Member or learning about dinosaurs? I can get you signed up!
