Eric’s favorite teacher was Maureen Dincher, his high school British literature teacher. She inspired a love of the material and connected with her students beyond the classroom.
Eric serves as the Foundation’s Chief Finance and Administrative Officer. He is responsible for finances, administration, human relations, and IT needs. He keeps the lights on – literally – at the Foundation.
He brings fifteen years of nonprofit experience and a CPA license to his role, as well as a lifelong appreciation for teachers. His mother taught elementary and middle school in Maryland for 41 years and is a lifetime NEA member. He believes there is no finer mission than working on behalf of our nation’s public school students and educators.
Eric loves to spend time with his family, entertain, and regale his colleagues with fascinating tales from his time spent working at the National Zoo.
