Three International House Resident Council Members

Why I Serve on the International House Board of Directors

Jamy Faulhaber
"I serve on the International House Board because I want residents to enjoy the same experience as I did as a resident. I serve because I made many of my best friends at I-House and hope others will do the same. I serve because I-House was in deep financial trouble in the 1970's, and I don't want to see that happen again. And last I serve because I love the old building and want to make sure that it is preserved for future generations."

Ms. Jamy Faulhaber received her bachelor's degree in Spanish and Political Science from the University of Colorado. She attended the University of California at Berkeley for her Masters Degree in Spanish Language and Literature and lived at the International House. She was previously an IBM Regional Sales Manager for New York and New Jersey; and co-founder of an import business selling hand-painted tiles and fixtures from Mexico. Ms. Faulhaber served on the Board of Directors of the International House from 1974 until 1978 and from 1985 until 1997. She has served as Chair of the Development, Finance and House Committees. She is the current Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors.



Peter Robertson
"My career in the oil and natural gas business has taken me around the globe to an incredible array of countries, communities and cultures. These experiences have convinced me that bringing people together around productive endeavors in an atmosphere of mutual respect is one way to advance peace and understanding in the world. The mission of I-House is entirely consistent with this conviction."
