Nakahara recently retired from the Piedmont Unified School District after a 15-year career as a para-educator for the District and an administrative assistant at Beach Elementary School. An active volunteer throughout her life, Nakahara served as an art docent for the Oakland Museum, on parent-club boards in Piedmont, and on the Dress Best for Less board. She is a graduate of UC Berkeley, where she earned a degree in Art History.

Meyer is an experienced philanthropy executive, with a long career working for community nonprofit organizations and with a particular expertise in major gifts, institutional gifts and events. She recently retired from Better Health East Bay (the Sutter East Bay Medical Center Foundations), where she was regional director of Principal and Institutional Gifts. Prior to that position, she worked for Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland Foundation, where she was Director of Philanthropy and Associate Vice President of Philanthropy. She has led an active volunteer life, serving on organizations such as the East Bay College Fund, Piedmont Diversity Film Series Board, Write /Coach Connection, UC Santa Cruz/Cowell College alumni development committee, and the Oakland Potluck food rescue organization’s board. She has a Master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration from University of San Francisco, and a bachelor’s degree in Sociology/Psychology from UC Santa Cruz.
