Board of Directors

The affairs of the Delmarva Free School shall be managed by its Board of Directors.*

Kelly J. Johnson Tokasz, Board Treasurer


Kelly J. J. T’s decade of bookkeeping, accounting, and business management experience contributes to the strong financial and operational foundation of our organization.  Her spiritual life and worldview are rooted in a connection to the natural world nurtured by childhood camping trips, early morning fishing, and her barefoot upbringing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Kelly’s professional philosophy is every business has the power to be a force for good, and  social entrepreneurship is a mentality that we can all bring to our work, regardless of what it is.  In her free time, you can find Kelly expressing her love of food through cooking or seeking new and interesting grub spots, hanging out on her back porch staring at the woods, or spending quality time with her husband and daughter, and other loved family and friends.

Erika Robuck, Board Secretary


Erika is the national bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl, Call Me Zelda, Fallen Beauty, The House of Hawthorne, and Receive Me Falling. She is a contributor to the anthology Grand Central: Postwar Stories of Love and Reunion, and to the Writer’s Digest essay collection Author in Progress. #Hockeystrong, as E. Robuck, is her first satire. She has her own blog, Muse, and is a member of the Hemingway, Historical Novel, and Millay Societies. In 2014, Robuck was named Annapolis’ Author of the Year.  She resides there with her husband and three sons.

Laura Walsh, Board Vice President


Laura Walsh has also spent her career in the legal publishing field. With a focus on digital offerings, she is required to wear many hats simultaneously. Her day-to-day involves simple, old fashioned editing, conducting fact-checking research, creating and evolving web-based applications, doing customer outreach for new product concept testing, and managing the workflow of offshore contractors. She is part of a close-knit team — it’s not just what you do, but who you do it with. Laura received a B.A. in English Literature from Washington College in 2002, and is a devotee of striking the balance between urban and natural landscape experiences.
