Vice President:

Julie Klein

After working for many years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then the University Purchasing and Management Cooperative, Julie is now a stay-at-home mom to her two daughters. Her oldest (Maddy) will be starting kindergarten at Netherwood this fall and her youngest (Sophie) will be home for one more year before starting preschool. After Covid put her gym membership on hold, she started pushing her double stroller all over town. She and her daughters just completed a 500 mile Get to Sesame Street Challenge.


Laura Reese

After eight years in the banking industry, I began a career as a stay-at-home mom when my husband and I had our first child and moved to Oregon in 2013. Today, I am a mom to Aaron (2nd grade at NKE) and Collin (4K at Little Angels). When I’m not busy caring for the boys, I run a small consignment business out of my home and volunteer in several capacities in the kids’ schools and at our church. Looking forward to learning the ropes as the new PTO Treasurer!


Liane Rhodes

As an administrator at Bee Balm Learning Center, where all my children attended, I was able to have a direct hand in shaping their early learning experiences. I am so excited to get involved in the Oregon PTO and continue being involved in my children’s education. I live here in Oregon with my husband and our three children. My oldest, Kelly will be a third grader at Prairie View, my son Nolan will start 4K at Little Angels, and my youngest, Kenneth attends Bee Balm in Madison, where mom is just a room away. I look forward to a great school year!
