Get to Know Your Board: Wenjia Zhao

25 Feb 2024 10:14 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of members who have volunteered their time to serve on the SMPC Board.  This month, we will be highlighting a few of our Board Members by sharing their SMPC role and experiences.

Meet Wenjia Zhao!

As the Treasurer for the SMPC, could you tell us what exactly you do?

I help the club track and manage its expenses, handle reimbursements and payments, and monitor its budget. I also file taxes, prepare financial reports, and handle other financial paperwork with banks and payment processors.

How long have you been an SMPC member, and how long have you been on the Board?   What initially drew you to join the SMPC, and then to volunteer for this Board position?  

I joined SMPC as a member in February 2023, so it’s just been a little over a year. I joined it originally just to get involved with kid and parent friendly events. I really enjoyed the events and wanted to help out. I saw a recruitment email for the board in August 2023 and officially joined a month later. 

What city do you live in?  How many kids do you have and how old are they?  

I live in San Mateo city, near Hillsdale. I have a toddler son who’s turning 2 in April!

Where are some of your favorite places (in San Mateo or elsewhere in the Bay Area) to take your son? 

My son loves running around and touching everything, so we enjoy places with toddler-proof interactive exhibits like CuriOdyssey and Palo Alto Junior Museum. We also enjoy going to Laurie Meadows park and our home park, Paddock, when the weather is good. In the summer when it gets really hot we would go fountain hopping at Stanford to cool off as well.

What is your favorite SMPC event you've attended and why?

Highlands Pool Party! It was our first time at the Highlands Recreation Center, and we really liked the shallow kiddie pool. Plus the food at the party was really tasty.
