Meet the Board (2017 - 2018)
Samarina S., President
Hi! My name is Samarina and I am the BMAK President for the 2017-2018 year. I have two wonderful children, ages 3 and 1. My husband and I moved into Bristow in 2008. Before becoming a mom, I worked as an electrical and systems engineer. I have been a member of BMAK for about a year, and already have gained a strong appreciation for how much this club does. I have met many great friends (and neighbors!) through BMAK, and my children enjoy participating in the many activities each month. When I’m not playing with and teaching my children, I spend my days going to the gym, watching football (HTTR), baking, knitting, reading, and watching movies.
Sarah V., Executive Vice President
HI! My name is Sarah and I am the Executive Vice President of BMAK for the 2017-2018 year. My husband and I moved to Bristow four years ago. I am the proud mom of Jack, age 2 ½ and we are expecting another baby boy in July 2017. We also have two English Bulldogs fur babies, Benson, age 10 and Abby age 9. I have lived it the Washington DC area almost 19 years. I am licensed clinical social worker who currently works full time for the Federal Government. In my spare time I enjoy reading, travel, and spending time with friends and family. I joined BMAK to meet more moms and children in the area. It is a great support and network of friends.
Meredith H., Administrative Vice President
Hi! My name is Meredith and I am the BMAK Administrative VP. I have 2 girls Ayala (2.5 yrs) and Stella (6 months). My husband Alfredo and I moved here for Charlottesville in November 2016. I am originally form Indiana, however made my way to Virginia by way of California. I wanted to join BMAK when I decided to stay home after our move. The few months I have been a member have been fantastic! Have met some terrific Momma friends to share advice with, laugh with, and just enjoy each other's company while our little ones build friendships too. Before my second daughter I was a Pharmaceutical Rep. I am planning on going back to work in the next few months but, know the friendships I have made will continue despite not staying home full time anymore. This organization has been an amazing resource so much fun!
Katie K., Treasurer
My name is Katie and I have lived in Manassas my whole life (other than college @ Virginia Tech- Go Hokies!!). My husband, Billy, and I are still hoping to move to Bristow or the PWC side of Manassas soon, so if you know of any great houses for sale, let me know! I am a CPA (accountant) and am currently working full time. I'm lucky enough to have a great employer that is okay with me working from home two days a week so I can still be around for my son, Evan, who is 17 months old. I love food and fitness. I love finding new healthy recipes and I love just about every form of exercise, especially things that allow me to be outside. I also thoroughly enjoy trashy reality TV whenever I can sneak it in. I am excited to be the Treasurer this year!
Lauren F., Secretary
