How did you first learn about JJWC?

I learned of JJWC through Kim Vogen, a friend from my church.

What made you decide to join JJWC?

After hearing about who they are and what they do for the community, I really felt like it was a great fit for me. I can honestly say that I was not wrong!

What has been your favorite service project or event to be a part of?

My favorite event is Cause For Celebration and then the check distribution afterwards! Seeing how grateful the recipients are just makes me smile!

How have you personally grown or benefitted from being in JJWC?

I have the pleasure of being surrounded by many like-minded women all working towards a common goal.

Tell us a little about your family and what you do for a living.

I have been employed by Joliet Central High School as a special education teacher for the past 24 years. I am not married, but dating a wonderful man whom I dated more than 25 years ago, and couldn’t be happier! I’m looking forward to what the future holds for us!

What's a fun fact that most people might not know about you?

I not only share a birthday with Helen Keller, but am actually distant cousins with her too!
