PTO Board

For the 2020-2021 school year, the position of secretary will be open. If you are interested in that role, please contact the current president, Ashley Newman.

My husband, Chris, and I have three sons. Jackson is a 7th grader at Northside Middle School, Greyson is a 5th grader at Richards, and our youngest, Bronson, is a 3rd grader at Richards. This is my second school year as the first grade teachers assistant. I joined PTO when my oldest was a first grader so I could stay updated on all things Richards. I have met many amazing families and made great friends thru PTO and am thankful for the opportunity to give back to our school.




I live in Columbus with my husband, Brett; and two daughters, Olivia and Vivian. Olivia is a first grader at Richards this year. I teach Jewelry & Glass and Photography at Columbus North High School. And in addition to that, I'm the prom coordinator, Bull Dog Pantry coordinator, and I run a photography studio, Urban Rhino Photography. I'm super excited for this year and all the new things the PTO is offering!

Vice President


My husband, Kirk, and I have a son who is a 5th grader at Richards and a daughter who is a 7th grader at Central. I joined PTO when my daughter was a 1st grader and have thoroughly enjoyed having the extra connection with the students and staff at Richards. Being a part of PTO has allowed me to feel like I’ve contributed to the school community that my children are a part of.



I'm a proud mom of two boys, both will be entering first grade at Richards this fall. My husband Eric and I both grew up in the Buffalo, New York area and moved to Columbus in 2010. We love the Columbus area and feel very lucky to be a part of such an amazing community. I am excited to help lead this amazing organization and continue to build upon all of the success it has achieved thus far.
