The reason why her photo had not yet been uploaded to Commoms is rather simple. 
The staff that were going to do it (thank you for doing it) are attending the 
organization’s All Hands event. Getting the information out was our focus, and 
we will be updating other places early next week. I hope folks can appreciate 
our desire to focus on the event and immediate dissemination of information. :)

For what it is worth, we do make an effort to ourselves take and make available 
a freely licensed photo of board members. However, photo shoots are not always 
the best use of our in-person time with board members. We are looking into ways 
to expedite the process and do them outside in-person gatherings.

I will pass the comment about page design to our design folks. Thank you for 
the feedback and I hope the above helps answer your questions. :)
