RUBY PAN is a homeschooling mom to a precocious son with lots of interests. Ms. Pan has no musical background (save for 2 weeks of piano lessons at 7) but loves and listens to all genres of music and is invested in giving all children access to programs that enable discovery and development of their talents and interests.

Ruby's background is in technology and include designing and developing desktop and notebook computers, leading product lines from inception to production, business development, and being part of the founding team of a mobile software startup. Most recently, Ruby has served as a member as well as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Arbor Learning Community. Her own experience and interest in the visual arts as well as observations of fellow engineers with strong musical interests and avocations solidified her believe that the arts are a necessary and critical part of any child's education in developing their creativity, whatever their pursuits in the future.

Ruby has a BS Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
