Treasurer - Erin Troff Treasurer@kolterpto.com
Hi, I am Erin Troff. My daughter, Robyn, has been at Kolter for the last 2 years. She is entering 1st grade and my son, Fritz, will be in kinder. Last year, I was co-chair of the spirit wear committee and welcoming committee, and chair of the library. I volunteer whenever I can get away from work including boosterthon and field day. I was born and raised in Westbury and actually graduated from Kolter in 1998! I then went to Johnston middle school (now Meyerland) and graduated from Bellaire high school. In my spare time I love to complete puzzles, play board games, and I have a very unhealthy obsession with Glee and musicals in general. My husband and I own Chimney Rock Car Care, an auto repair shop in the galleria area. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary in March!

Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom during the pandemic, Andrea was a legal business consultant and project manager focused on process improvement, software implementations, resource optimization and internal training material development.
