I joined Ravenswood Community Services in January of 2012. I have been a parishioner of All Saints' and a volunteer with RCS for more than 16 years.
Before joining RCS, I spent 11 years working as a project, market and product manager in the telecommunications industry, until the year 2000. At that point, I took a career break to raise my children and began a lengthy and varied volunteer career, including:
- serving on the parent/teacher board of the kids' elementary school for 7 years in a number of capacities including Treasurer and President;
- working as the parish liaison for the Christmas Basket program with the Cathedral Shelter;
- managing food orders, deliveries and the relationship with the Greater Chicago Food Depository on behalf of Ravenswood Community Services.
In 2009, I began my own business working with both business and residential customers as a professional organizer. Though I loved that work, when the opportunity to join the staff of RCS came about, I knew that this was what was supposed to be next. I left the professional organizing world at the end of 2011 to work with the amazing staff and volunteers at RCS, an organization that has been near to my heart for many years.
When I'm not at RCS or volunteering at my kid's schools, I enjoy reading, attending all manner of kid sports events, walking my dog, hanging out with my husband and my friends and practicing yoga.
