Office of Development, Stanford University
Georgia has been studying education since childhood – in fact, she grew up in her mother’s preschool in Santa Rosa, and both her parents were teachers. Georgia returned to the world of education as a parent, when her daughter entered kindergarten at Roosevelt Elementary school in Redwood City in 1999.
Like many other school parents in California, Georgia quickly became immersed in volunteer work at the school, serving on the PTA and Site Council, and running fundraising campaigns to pay for programs the state no longer paid for.
Georgia eventually joined the Redwood City Education Foundation and served as President for two years and Chair of the Save Our Schools Music program for an additional two years. She also served on several Redwood School District committees and two parcel tax campaigns the successful Measure W.
After Georgia’s daughter started at Woodside High School (Class of ’12), she joined the Site Council where she served for five years. Her son (Class of ’16), a Kennedy Middle School alumnus, is now a senior at this great high school.
Currently Georgia works in the office of development at Stanford University. In this central organization, she manages a group of nine staffers and develops, implements, and monitors policies and programs focused on reporting to donors about the uses of their gifts of scholarships, fellowships, and professorships. In this role, she works collaboratively with the seven schools on monitoring adherence to and compliance with the university’s stated stewardship reporting goals and standards.
Georgia was elected as Trustee on the Sequoia Union High School District Board in November 2015.
