PAK's mission would not be possible without its team of dedicated and hardworking members and volunteers


Mary Postma


Mary Postma, an avid advocate and whole-hearted supporter of the performing arts, founded PAK in 2013 as a way to give children access to the shows and performances that have brought her so much joy over the years. Before PAK, Mary was a successful Realtor in Northern Virginia, earning her spot in the Lifetime Multimillion Dollar Club. She is also a beloved wife, mother, sister, and friend.


Claire Machosky

Vice Chair
Claire Machosky, an educator by profession, knows the importance of integrating the arts into all cirriculum. Claire's career included being a Social Studies Teacher, Department Chairperson, School Dean, and Educational Consultant. Currently, she is affiliated with the Library of Congress's Teaching and Primary Sources program. A wife, mother, and grandmother, Claire and her husband, Al, reside in Haymarket, VA.

Nadine Bishop


Music and arts have always been Nadine Bishop's passion. As a former music and piano teacher, the joy of observing students as they watched a musical performance at the Hylton Performing Arts Center was all that it took for Nadine to become a member and life supporter of PAK.


Sue Farris

Sue Farris and her husband have lived in Prince William County for 47 years. Together, they have traveled many miles outside of the country to attend the performing arts events they love. The opening of the Hylton Performing Arts Center has allowed Sue to enjoy performing arts right in Prince William. As a retired school teacher, Sue participates in PAK to help students experience the performing arts that she loves.
