Erica White


Cougars: Charlie (Class of 2020) , Faye (Class of 2021)
Future Cougar:
 Henrie (class of 2026)

Living in Belmont Addition since 2012, my husband Brandon and I value the young families and dual-language program at Geneva Heights, where our son Charlie and daughter Faye attend. With my bilingual background, their linguistic development is crucial. I work in healthcare and teach prenatal yoga throughout Dallas, while Brandon owns a personal fitness company. As Pre-G co-president and a member since its inception, I'm committed to creatively maintaining its beneficial impact on families.

Leah Williams


Cougar: Jenna (Class of 2022)
Future Cougar: Hallie (class of 2025)

East Dallas natives, Stuart and I, have deep roots here. Both alumna of local schools, Dallas ISD and Lake Highlands, we established our family home in the area. I run a boutique communications agency & nonprofit consulting firm, Dala Communications, where Stuart also serves as VP of Operations and Senior Fundraising Consultant. I love seeing the area’s growth over the years - our family is deeply invested in this community. As Co-President of Pre-G, I'm excited to work with Erica and our board, promoting Pre-G and advocating for quality education in our community.

Melinda Trujillo


Cougars: Gwendolyn (Class of 2020) and Madeleine (Class of 2022)

My husband, Thomas, and I, now residing in Hollywood Heights with our two daughters, first discovered our love for Lakewood Heights in 2012, following our move from Florida. Introduced to Pre-Geneva a few years ago, we became deeply involved, even choosing Geneva Heights for our girls after relocating to a different school zone. While I work for an investment management firm and Thomas is an audit partner at KPMG, our involvement in local schooling remains a delightful way to build friendships and support our community. As Treasurer, I manage all financial aspects of our organization.

Lydia Hathorn


Cougars: Connor (Dual Language 3rd Grade)
Future Cougar: Claire (Kinder Class of 2024)

After moving from NYC/NJ to Dallas in 2016, seeking a communal neighborhood and a thriving school for our kids became our priority. Our son Connor began dual-language PreK4 at Geneva Heights in 2019, and our daughter Claire aims to join him in 2024. I work part-time as a women’s health nurse practitioner and enjoy Greenville strolls, scootering with the kids, and various hobbies like crocheting and watching the Great British Bake-Off when I'm not volunteering at the school. We've found our community and cherish the educational journey our kids are on.

Kristen Orlando

VP of Programming

Cougars: Lucca (Class of 2020) and Layla (Class of 2022)

Moving from Denver to Dallas in 2012, my husband and I, both Ohio State Graduates, were charmed by Lower Greenville after a year of searching for the perfect neighborhood. We cherish easy access to Greenville bars and Tietze Park adventures with our two kids. He works in Supply Chain for US Cellular, and I'm the Director of Quality at BP Aero, our family's FAA repair station. A member of the PreG board since its early days, I've delighted in seeing our initial group of infants blossom into Geneva Heights Kindergarteners. My role involves orchestrating annual events and managing our little athletes during sports seasons, thoroughly enjoying the adorable chaos of three-year-olds playing soccer.

Claire Cook


Future Cougar: Vivian (Class of 2026)

My husband, Turner, and I, along with our daughter Vivian (a future 2026 Geneva Heights Cougar), moved to Belmont Conservation District in 2019 and immediately adored its familial vibe and the distinctive charm of East Dallas and Lower Greenville. Besides relishing walks, dining experiences, and playtime at Tietze Park, I indulge in gardening while Turner frequently cycles around White Rock Lake. We're travel enthusiasts, particularly towards Mexico! Professionally, I'm an employment lawyer and Turner is in industrial construction management. I cherish the support and camaraderie of the Pre-G community and eagerly anticipate Vivian's journey at Geneva Heights.

Victoria Pfitzinger

VP of Communications

Future Cougars: 

Caroline (Class of 2024) and John (Class of 2026)

My husband and I moved to Lakewood Heights in March 2021 and adore the community and Geneva Heights school, discovered through neighborhood yard signs. With our kids Caroline (2) and John (3 months), we've transitioned from our Uptown condo life to exploring local parks and enjoying family time. I work in corporate communications at AT&T, while my husband Brian is a Controller at an oil and gas company. As communications chair, I'm excited to keep Pre-G members and potential families informed about events and promote Geneva Heights Elementary.
