Barbara Martinez, President

Barbara is married to Will Bohlen and they have two children, Nathaniel, a third grader, and Lydia, a four year old in the APS Montessori program. 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.  Barbara can be reached 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 second-grader Abby and fourth-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

 Kathryn Evans Cordon, VP of Communications

Kathy is married to Rick Cordon and they have third-grade twins, William and Sophia.  After 20 years in sales, Kathy loves being a stay at home mom and enjoys cooking, travel and the constant go, go, go that is Arlington living.  She also loves watching her children play sports, listening to music, cheering on the UNC Tar Heels, volunteering and being active in the PTA.  The Cordon Family is excited for their 4th year at Campbell and loves being an active 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 Kathy at

Amanda Lowenberger, Treasurer

Amanda's family includes her husband, Aaron, and her son Nathan, a first-grader. She is also on the board of an environmental non-profit, and designs and sells science-themed cross stitch patterns. She loves cooking, walking Nate to school through the woods in the morning (or carting him around in their cargo bike), and learning new skills like drywalling as she fixes up their house. Amanda is very excited to be serving on the board, and is looking forward to getting to know other Campbell families better! You can reach her by email at

Shana Brown, Secretary

Leaving behind small-town Massachusetts and the Colorado foothills, Shana moved to DC for grad school at the turn of the century and never left; today, she puts her public health background to good use as a proposal writer for a global health research organization. Shana and husband James Main have two children, Chaya, in third grade, and Ari, who is fast approaching toddlerhood. The Brown/Mains enjoy spending time with family and friends and exploring nature and culture both near and far. They especially like seeing live music at one of the many venues where James books bands (including our very own Wetlands Festival!). They love being part of the Campbell community and are excited about starting their fifth year as a Campbell family. You can reach Shana at
