Callie Kackley, President
Callie has been wife to her handsome husband Justin (major Construction buff) for 12 years. They met working at Camp Tadmor as summer counselors in 2003 and they have 3 kiddos Mia (4th grade), Liam (3rd grade), Nolan (Kinder). She has been fortunate to be a stay at home mom for 10 years and she runs her Arbonne business from home and she works part-time at CODSN (a local non-profit that supports families experiencing disabilities). The Kackley’s moved from Portland to Bend in 2015 and enjoy living in a smaller city now. Callie is your classic Type A personality and loves to organize and coordinate events. She also loves enjoying the beautiful lakes in Bend on a paddle board, spending time with her girlfriends and enjoying occasional ocean rolls
Tera Martincic, Vice President
Tera moved to Bend a year and a half ago with her husband Peter and two daughters, Claire (6th grade @ Sky View) & Avery (3rd grade). Before moving to Bend, Tera taught Kindergarten for 16 years and loved being in education. Now working “Full Time” as a mom, she feels very fortunate to be more involved with her daughters, their schools, and their daily lives. She loves volunteering in the classroom and helping the school community. With her busy girls, she is either at the hockey rink or dance studio. You may also see her around the neighborhood walking her golden retriever, Millie. She also enjoys hiking, skiing, camping, and spending time with her family.
Katie Speck, Treasurer
Katie is a Bend native (born & raised) as well as her husband Joe. They have 3 boys, Colten & Riley (twins in the 3rd Grade) and Cameron (4 years old). Katie works part-time as a bookkeeper and full-time as a mom. She can be frequently seen volunteering at the school, on the sports field (soccer, football and baseball), in the gym (basketball, wrestling and rock climbing) or at the hockey rink. Being a mom of three active boys makes for little downtime, when she does have time, she enjoys time in outdoors, walking the butte, taking a hike or enjoying some beach time (both lake and ocean).
Nicole Dale, Co-Secretary
Nicole and family (husband Marcus, son Tysen – 4th grade and daughter Sutton -1st grade) moved to bend 6 years ago and strongly believe Bend (and Lava Ridge for that matter) is the ideal place to raise a family. After working remotely from home for many years Nicole now works full time at a non profit in the affordable housing sector. Luckily both positions have made it so Nicole could volunteer in the classroom and a variety of events at Lava Ridge for the past 4 years. When Nicole isn’t working, volunteering at Lava Ridge, or transporting and coaching her kids in their various sporting activities, she can be found camping at a lake with her family, participating and teaching DanceFit dance classes or tackling the always fun and sometimes frustrating home and yard projects!
Melissa Vincent, Co-Secretary
Melissa and her family, which includes husband John, daughter Ava (3rd grade), son Holden (1st grade) and two cute fur babies (Lyle and Bowie) moved to Bend two years ago from Southern California in order to find that much sought after work/life balance. Melissa was fortunate to bring her full time day job with her as a non-profit Director in the affordable housing sector, which has allowed her the flexibility to volunteer in many aspects of her community, including this year’s PTO board. Between helping out in the classrooms, soccer and baseball fields, swim team and dance, this mama is always on the go. In her spare time (ha!) she also enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking and sitting down with a good book.
