Amy Brown

TSHERING AMDO, M.D.

 

Tshering (Jerry) has lived in Bronxville since 2019. He and his wife have three children, two currently in Bronxville Elementary School (grades 3 and 1) and one in pre-K at RCNS, heading to the Bronxville Elementary School fall of 2023.

 

Tshering is an Associate Professor at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and the Section Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care at NYU Langone Health-Brooklyn. He is concurrently pursuing an Executive Master's Degree in Health Administration at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. In the past, Tshering founded a non-profit organization Global Tibetan Professionals Network. GTPN is a volunteer-based networking forum consisting of Tibetan professionals from North America. The organization aims to connect and build a support network of Tibetan professionals in North America and globally. The organizational goals are to mentor aspiring young Tibetans through networking and sharing ideas, information, and resources.

 

In his words, "Bronxville Village is a great place to live and bring up your precious young ones. But we can make this place better and safer. We engage in efforts to make Bronxville a walk and bike-friendly town. We petition to keep our village safe for children and everyone to walk and bike around the village without traffic hazards. I am eager to collaborate with like-minded people to initiate and create change."

 

And regarding his desire to serve on the NPC, "Each of us has transcended from being individuals to life partners to parents. Our children and our school community are important aspects of our lives. I can contribute by using my innate leadership skill sets and participating in discussions and policy-making to build a better future for our children in the school and the community. I want to be an integral part of a dedicated committee that focuses on our children's growth while focusing on diversity, equality, and innovation."

AMY BROWN

Amy and her husband, Kevin, have lived in Bronxville for over ten years, having previously lived in New York City and Brooklyn.  Their oldest son attends Bronxville High School, their middle son is currently completing a gap year and will return to Bronxville High School in the fall, and their youngest child is in third grade at the Elementary School.  Amy has served in many volunteer roles in the community, including the Parent Board of RCNS, ES Class parent for almost every grade from K-5, as well as Chair of the ES Book Fair.  Amy has also served as MS Council Secretary and PTA Executive Council Secretary.  In addition, Amy is an involved parishioner of Christ Church Bronxville and currently volunteers for Stable Therapy and Learning at Twin Lakes Farm in Eastchester. She is an avid tennis mom and looks forward to seeing both boys play for the Varsity tennis team next spring.  This year the Broncos are in the final four at States—Go Broncos! Amy holds a degree in the History of Art from the University of Virginia, and prior to moving to Bronxville she was the Associate Director of Development at American Ballet Theatre.

 

In her own words, “As a resident and extremely involved parent over the last ten years, I consider the Bronxville School to be the heart and soul of our small community.  I have served the school and community in numerous capacities over the years, and would like to continue by joining the NPC.  Of the many characteristics and qualities that truly make Bronxville a special place to live, it is the prevailing sense of community that I would like to continue to see thrive in our village.  I hope the NPC will continue to be viewed as a community builder as its members identify and interview candidates for the Board of Education. Our sense of community depends upon individuals setting aside any political views as we come together as parents and concerned citizens to continue to ensure students are offered an exceptional academic and emotional experience at the school.”
