Since arriving from the East coast in 1969, my family and I have been Glen Ellyn/Wheaton residents. My husband John (59 years) and I have raised four children, two boys and two girls. They and their families of four adult grandchildren live in the area. Our oldest son, Brian (deceased), was a 12-year resident of the DuPage Care Center (DPCC). My husband and I are now residents of Wyndemere Senior Living in Wheaton.
Professionally, I have been an educator teaching high school biology, middle school math and working in career and guidance related areas. I retired as a college/academic counselor after 12 years at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.
An avid golfer and sports fan, I exercise regularly, love spending time with family and friends, and enjoy reading and word, math and jigsaw puzzles. My community service has included Bridge Communities transitional housing, DPCC and now at Wyndemere, I am on the Resident Council, chair the Food Services Committee, and am an active social activities volunteer.
My family and I are forever grateful for the exceptional and compassionate care that our son received at DPCC, and I am honored to be on the Foundation Board to give back in service to DPCC residents and staff.
