School & Community

Eileen has been actively involved with the Lexington Public Schools for more than 20 years. As the parent of two children who attended elementary through high school, she was an engaged volunteer at every level and became deeply knowledgeable about schools and school issues. Even after her children graduated, Eileen became more intensely involved in school issues, worked on numerous school/town committees, and was elected to the School Committee in 2016.
