Nathan Zee, President

Nathan Zee photoNathan is married to Stacey and they have two daughters, Rachel (3rd grade) and Rebecca (1st grade). The Zee Family loves everything about Campbell including (but not limited to) the teachers, staff, families, community meeting, outdoor learning, looping, the diversity, and fabulous kids. Nathan was really into break dancing in the early 80s, but wasn't that good—he almost made his 5th-grade break dancing team (All American Breakers), but was the last dancer cut. He also enjoys riding in go-carts around tennis courts, eating cheeseburgers covered in ketchup, and going to bed early. Go Campbell! You can reach him by email at

 Paige Hamrick, VP of Programming

Paige is married to Abed Ali. She is a (thankfully) former lawyer turned teacher at a high school in Arlington. She is the mom of first-grader Abby and third-grader Saad. When she is not acting as a taxi for her kids' activities, she enjoys planning travel to exotic locations like Costa Rica, Copenhagen, any place that starts with C, and Disney World. One of her proudest moments was winning Disney Trivia aboard a Disney cruise. The whole Hamrick-Ali clan are big sports fans (Go Gators! Go Cardinals!). The Hamrick-Alis love everything about Campbell. Abby's favorite is the turtle, while Saad enjoys lunch time.  Paige loves the community engagement, specialized attention from staff, and total engagement of the faculty. Abed appreciates the short walk to school in the morning and how well the entire school seems to know each other and his kids. You can reach her at

 Barbara Martinez, VP of Communications

Barbara is married to Will Bohlen and they have two children, Nathaniel, a second grader, and Lydia, a three year old in Montessori. A history buff, she works in marketing and communications for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Fun fact: She once worked at the assistant for the Washington Post's Reliable Source column and got to interview celebrities and attend glamorous (for Washington) parties. But her favorite assignment was probably the day she spent shadowing the balloon handlers in the July 4 parade. Life is even more interesting now and the “Bohlez” family is tickled to be part of the vibrant and diverse Campbell community. If you have ideas or can help with the PTA’s website, flyers, or Facebook group, she wants to hear from you! You can reach Barbara at

Jenny Morris, Treasurer

Jenny Morris family 2 Jenny is a corporate tax accountant and has served on the boards of several non-profit organizations in the last several years. Having grown up in the small, mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona, one of her favorite things is spending time in the mountains and the outdoors. When they get the time, she and her husband, Mike, love to take their daughters, Margy (3rd grade) and Jane (kindergarten) on adventures near and far. She loves that Campbell has a focus on spending time outdoors and appreciating the world and people that we share it with! Jenny is looking forward to becoming more involved in the Campbell Community as treasurer of the PTA. You can reach her by email at
