My family and friends share my love for the orchestra, and we enjoy attending the Family Concerts together. It truly feels like being part of a warm and welcoming orchestra family and community. My family consists of my loving husband, two talented daughters who play the violin and cello, and two adorable dogs.
I’m Elizabeth, a dedicated nonprofit administrator and fundraiser. Balancing my professional pursuits with hobbies and family life brings me joy and fulfillment. Gardening, video games, and exploring my children’s interests are among my favorite activities.
As a music lover, I find solace in soul-stirring melodies from artists like Josh Groban and classical compositions such as Scheherazade, Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Brahms, Ravel, and Debussy. While I don’t currently have any pets, my children are persuading me to consider the idea of a turtle companion.
My greatest accomplishment is the joy of motherhood, witnessing my children’s unique personalities blossom. Their growth motivates me to embrace each day with enthusiasm. I believe in embracing the possibility of change and making a positive impact on the world.
As for my best-kept secret, let’s just say it wouldn’t be much of a secret if I revealed it now. Life is full of delightful surprises, and I eagerly embrace them.
Hi there, I’m Kimberly McMahon, and I’ve been living in Howard County for nearly 30 years. I absolutely love the diverse arts, music, and recreational activities that Howard County has to offer!
I joined the Board in the Fall of 2022. Although I played the flute as a child and sang, I no longer play an instrument even though music was a huge part of my childhood and fills my house today.
As a co-founder of Let’s Move, LLC (now part of the WayForth family), I had the privilege of leading a team that helped over 7,000 individuals and families relocate with ease. What makes me particularly proud is that we were able to help numerous talented women re-enter the workforce or embark on first-time careers after being stay-at-home moms. Our team, made up mostly of stay-at-home moms for 18-20 years, successfully transitioned into roles as sales and home organization professionals.
I’ve had the honor of being featured in publications such as the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Baltimore Sun, Washingtonian Magazine, and many other local media outlets. As a sought-after speaker, I love sharing insights on various topics, including Company Culture and Core Values, Creating Industry Best Practices, Customer Experience, and all-things Home Transition Services. It brings me great joy to share my knowledge and experiences with others, hoping to inspire and empower them along their own journeys.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support the interests of the Columbia Orchestra and expand the reach to many more who will be enriched by their diverse musical offerings.
Hello, I’m John, and professionally, I work as an IT Operations Manager & Security Officer. However, my true passion lies in music – both playing and writing it. Being part of the jazz band is a fulfilling avocation for me, but surprisingly, my favorite piece is “Jupiter” by Gustav Holst, showcasing my eclectic taste in music.
Outside of my musical pursuits, the role I cherish the most is being a loving husband to Sheri, who is not just my partner but also my best friend. Together, we have the privilege of raising four incredible daughters, and life has blessed us with the joy of having four granddaughters and three grandsons.
For me, family is the greatest accomplishment in life. Being a part of their lives fills me with immense gratitude and a sense of purpose. Each day, I find joy in the love and support we share, and I’m grateful for the meaningful connections that bring us all closer together.
