Board Members

There is a publicly elected Board of Directors consisting of five members serving four-year terms. The Board of Directors serve without compensation. While the directors could receive pay for the work they do, over the years they have rejected that idea. In order to broaden the base of local government, the Board has appointed a Fire Commission and a Parks and Recreation Commission. Members of the Commissions are appointed for two-year terms by the CSD Board.

The Board of Directors are always interested in hearing from members of the community.  The best way to address the Board is by attending a public board meeting and participating in the public comment portions of the meeting.  To contact an individual Board Director, please call them directly at the phone numbers listed below.  To send an email to the entire Board, please send to:

Growing up in Marinwood has brought me wonderful childhood memories.  I was very blessed to grow up in this amazing community.  Now as parent of two, I hope they have those same experiences I had.  I am thankful to have the opportunity to be part of this community and serve as a member of the Marinwood CSD Board of Directors.

Christopher Case

As a lifelong member of the Marinwood Community, I’ve been involved in all aspects of the neighborhood. As a kid, I participated in many of the Marinwood CSD programs and community events including the Waterdevils Swim Team, the Fireman’s pancake breakfast and Labor Day BBQ, and countless other events held in and around the community center. As I grew older, I became a lifeguard and coach at the Marinwood Pool and also worked part-time at the community center and in the park. I owe a lot of who I am today to all the CSD directors, commissioners, and amazing staff who have worked at Marinwood over the years. I have been a teacher at Miller Creek Middle School for the past 21 years, and I have been coaching the Waterdevils for the past 8 years. My wife and I have been homeowners in Marinwood for the last 17 years, and we couldn’t be happier with the community in which we have chosen to live and raise our children. I look forward to helping maintain the tradition of Marinwood as a healthy, vibrant community and working toward an even better future for everyone.

Sivan Oyserman

I moved to Marin five years ago with my husband and newborn. Since then, I have been an active member of the Marinwood community. I have had the honor of serving on the Parks and Recreation Commission (April 2014 to December 2018), taking a 1-year break for the birth of my second child. I started my service on the Parks and Recreation Commission as an alternate, then as a Commissioner, and most recently I have been serving as the Vice- Chair.

I earned my Bachelors of Science in Cellular Molecular and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan, followed by an MBA at Drexel. I have worked in both academic and industry settings in a variety of capacities including research, sales, and marketing. 

Since becoming a mother, I have used my organizing and budgeting skills as an active citizen and community member of Marinwood,  Southern Marin Mother's Community, of Kol Shofar, Chabad, Gan Israel Preschool, and most recently as a parent in the Miller Creek School District.

I am honored and delighted to have the opportunity to serve our community as an elected member of our Board of Directors.

Lisa Ruggeri

I was born and raised in Novato, and grew up enjoying the beauty and safety of Marin County. As a child I participated in just about every community program available, from the local Swim Team to Soccer, to SAT Prep courses, to Summer Camp, and could appreciate from a young age the positive impact strong community programs provide. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from UC Santa Barbara and spending several years building my career in San Francisco, I knew that there would be no better place to buy a home and raise a family than the Marinwood area. My husband and I moved to Upper Lucas Valley in 2011 and we now have two young children within the Miller Creek School district. We love this community and have been fortunate to participate in the many activities it offers.

Professionally, career has focused around Talent Acquisition and Human Resources. I’ve recruited for and led teams within Big 4 and Boutique Professional Services Firms, as well as a Global REIT. From a community service prospective, I was an active member of the Junior League of San Francisco for 7 years, chairing the Recruitment and Outreach Committee within it for one year, and am currently serving as a sustaining member.

I am honored and look forward to serving the Marinwood Community as a member of the Marinwood CSD Board of Directors.

William Shea

I was born and raised in the Sunset District of San Francisco.  As a youth, my family would drive north to Marin to escape the hustle and bustle of the “city” life. When I came into my own, I decided to buy property in Marin for these same reasons. In 1996, my wife, Gabriela and I bought a home in Marinwood. We chose this neighborhood because of its beautiful open spaces and the excellent public schools. Our children are now 15 and 18 years old and have both graduated from the Dixie School District. As their parents, we have enjoyed contributing many hours volunteering to ensure the quality of their education and we have had the pleasure of working alongside many other dedicated parents. We have also had the opportunity to meet so many of the wonderful people in our neighborhood through our children’s sports and a number of community events sponsored by our fire fighters, the CSD and Kelly’s Wishes Foundation. I began my service to the CSD as a volunteer for a special finance committee; I am now honored to continue my service as an elected director for my beloved community.
