Duane Wilson


We have one kiddo and she started here at OR in TK and now she is back on campus for 2nd grade.  I am a 10 year Air Force veteran that upon separating went into education.  I spent 1 year as a Title I tutor in elementary and 5 years teaching high school science.  Once my daughter was born, I transitioned once again and have been a stay-at-home dad for the last 7 years. 


My reason for wanting to be apart of the PTC is the level of passion and commitment that I’ve seen from the parents and staff.  We have an almost entirely new board this year and we are focused on continuing to provide support, resources and engaging campus events for the students their families and the staff. 


Go Broncos!

VP of Events

My name is Lauren- (lucky) mom to Elle (3rd grade) and Knox (Kindergarten). Fresh from the Bay, we joined the OR community in 2020 and I’m so excited to be apart of this new PTC board. I am an Event Planner and Coordinator by trade, but in recent years  my passion has grown into working with school communities and families to create memorable events and outings. 


When I’m not working as a Coordinator for RCSD, you can find me in my backyard lounging poolside with fam + friends, at our second home: Disneyland, or cheering on my SF Giants/Niners! I look forward to elevating the OR school experience alongside my fellow board members and meeting all of our amazing families! Team work makes the dream work!!!

VP of Membership

I currently have a 4th grader at Orchard Ranch (and a 7th grader at Chilton). We were fortunate enough to move into the OR community in 2018 from the Bay Area and love the school and staff! Roseville is definitely the dream community in which to raise kids. I work as a UX content strategist at a major SaaS company in the Bay Area and look forward to using those skills to help the PTC. 


This is my second year serving on the PTC doing membership and communications (all those Facebook and Insta posts are me). In addition to the PTC, I also am a Girl Scout troop leader and the fundraising chair for our Woodcreek Seawolves. 


I look forward to collaborating with the new PTC board to raise funds for our Broncos and the school. And I am really looking forward to what exciting events we are going to host this year.

Jen Watanabe


My name is Jen and I am the proud mom to Maya who is in 3rd grade at OR. Originally from the Bay Area, I bring over 20 years of experience in Corporate Finance with an emphasis on budgeting, forecasting, and financial planning. I am currently the Director of Finance at Houzz, a pre-IPO tech startup in the Bay Area and have worked in various finance roles at Shutterfly, Oracle, Sutter Health, Logitech, and Electronic Arts. 


In my spare time I enjoy weight lifting at the gym, shooting hoops, hiking trails in Auburn, biking around Lake Natoma, and stuffing my face with great food. :)


I am so grateful to have the opportunity to serve on the Board this year and be a part of this amazing school. I look forward to helping OR's PTC reach it's financial goals in order to provide our children with the best support and educational enrichment possible. Go Broncos!!!

Bio to Come

Heather McTaggart

VP of Communications

Spirit Wear Coordinator

I have a 1st and 2nd grader at Orchard Ranch. Before having kids, I was a teacher, and you may have occasionally seen me on campus subbing. I now have my own digital media company and host a podcast. I am excited to combine my knowledge of how elementary school campuses function with my digital strategy skills to help PTC run smoothly. 

Outside of PTC, you can find me watching Bravo or buying yet another house plant. My family enjoys swimming in our pool, visiting as many national parks as we can, and rooting for the 49ers and Giants.
