Luanne has been the commissioner of BAC Field Hockey since its first season in the Spring of 2010. Her daughters played soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey with our programs, dating back to the early 2000s! When she's not on our fields or watching college field hockey, she can be found running Olio2go, an Italian specialty foods ecommerce business.
As a child I always wanted to play organized sports, but as the son of a single immigrant mom in Los Angeles, I didn’t have the opportunity. About 7 years ago when my son turned 4, BurkeAC presented me the opportunity to coach him rec soccer. For me, this was my chance to get involved in organized sports. It has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have learned so much, not only regards to soccer, but about allowing children to grow at their own pace.
As a board member, I would like to represent the values the club has shown me as a positive organization within the community. To me, Burke Rec Soccer is at its best when the volunteer members not only contribute their time, but also their love of sport, community and family. I hope to represent these values as a member of the board.
I am running for re-election to the Board for a third consecutive term. I have been involved with Burke Athletic Club since 2009, enrolling my oldest daughter in their inaugural Fall Lacrosse clinic. I caught the BAC "bug" and became more and more involved in their programs, and progressed from sideline parent, to volunteer, assistant coach, head coach, and commissioner. It has been wonderful and encouraging to see the growth of the Girls Lacrosse Program at BAC. I have witnessed first-hand the positive benefits to the participants, parents and community in the programming that BAC puts on in all of their programs and hope to continue to support BAC at the Board level for another term. I am a 20+ year resident of Burke and look forward to many more years in this wonderful community! I appreciate the opportunity BAC members have given me to participate on the BAC Board.
