SMMUSD Creates New Community & Public Relations Officer Position:

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education on Dec. 12 approved the appointment Gail Pinsker as the new Community and Public Relations Officer, effective Jan. 12, 2015.

The Community and Public Relations Officer is a new position designed to improve communications within the district as well as with the community.

Pinsker joins SMMUSD from the William S. Hart Union High School District in the Santa Clarita Valley, where she has served as the Public Relations Officer for more than four years of this 16-school, 23,000-student, high-performing district. 

She brings more than 20 years of public relations, community relations, media relations and marketing experience to the district, and has been a public school education advocate for two decades, where she is passionate about student achievement. Pinsker has previously served with PTA for 17 years, where she held positions at the unit and council levels.

She currently sits on two education foundation boards serving the Santa Clarita Valley and has chaired an annual Principal for a Day event in the community for many years.

Pinsker has held previous positions for Nestle / Kathryn Beich school fundraising division and for eInstruction, an education technology company, as well as was a previous Vice President of Marketing for a community bank.

Pinsker has been active in business and community organizations and looks forward to getting involved with the community and local non-profits dedicated to supporting youth, in Santa Monica and Malibu.

She is a graduate of Cal State University Northridge with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, with an emphasis in corporate communications and she currently serves on the Journalism Alumni Association board for CSUN.

Pinsker has three children, two are college grads living and working in Southern California and the third is a junior at Cal State University Fullerton.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to join the wonderful team at SMMUSD,” Pinsker said. “I look forward to working with the board, administration and local community leaders to benefit all students throughout the district and support the district in meeting its communications goals.”
