Pablo Bizjack has been on the San Domenico Board of Trustees since 2018. Hs son, Parker, is a graduate of the SD Class of 2020, his daughter, Jillian, is a current junior, and wife, Monica, is an inspiring SD community builder and committed Panther's fan (at every basketball game up to the moment the team won the 2020 Northern California Championship)! Pablo carries on a true independent school family heritage and long relationship with San Domenico.
We thank Pablo for his service to San Domenico as a Trustee as well as Chair of the Finance Committee - and for agreeing to share a bit more in this #FacesOfSD profile:
Q. What is your full name?
Pablo Martin Bizjack
Q. What is your home town?
Raised in Marin, live in San Rafael, CA
Q. What is your favorite place in the world?
Almost anywhere on Kauai.
Q. What experience has helped you to grow the most in your life thus far?
Becoming a father is life changing.
Q. What inspired you to serve on the Board of Trustees?
My Dad. He was head of school at a number of independent schools, and I remember the impact a board would make on his role as a head of school, mostly good, but sometimes challenging. I felt that serving as a trustee was a way that I could support the school, and honor the work he so enjoyed.

Montevideo, Uruguay- It is where my mother is from, and we still have family there. The city, the people and the culture are absolutely incredible.

I love history, so I will read anything that has to do with our past. As for movies…give me a good underdog story any day aka Hoosiers.

Raising two incredible kids (with a lot of help from my wife, Monica)
Q. Any "hidden talents" you would like to share?
If I shared that, they wouldn’t be hidden..would they?
Q. In what do you find your greatest sense of meaning and purpose? My family (wife Monica, Parker ’20 and Jillian ’22).
Q. Anything else you would like people to know about you?
My mother taught Spanish at SD in the 70’s…she was especially proud that her grandkids selected SD for high school.
