VP of Operations - Emily riera

This is my 9th year at Long Creek and 5th year serving on the PTO Board, although I've held many roles since my oldest daughter started attending in 2010. I have a Kindergartener, a 7th grader at Bradley Middle School and 9th grader at Hopewell High School. I am happy to be back at Long Creek and involved with the PTO!  Volunteering is a passion for me, and I enjoy being involved with planning fun activities and supporting our amazing teachers, staff and students. My husband of 17 years, Eric, also volunteers and leads the Chess Club. Everyone at the Riera house helps me with my volunteering adventures! When I'm not taking care of PTO duties, I work full time for Harte Hanks Direct Marketing as a Digital Marketing Supervisor. I also volunteer at Bradley and Hopewell, and I'm the co-manager of the Meck 1 Service Unit of Girl Scouts Hornets Nest Council.
