Illinois Wesleyan University Council for Women
Studies have shown that while young women enter college with talent and enormous potential, they do so with less confidence than their male counterparts. This Council of alumnae was established to help change that for current female students at Illinois Wesleyan. Council members serve as mentors, advisors, connections to internships and more. We visit campus twice annually, once for a Homecoming planning session and once for a Spring summit that brings together female students, faculty, staff and alumnae for a 2-day conference focused on women’s issues at school, in the workplace, and in the home. I have been a proud member since 2010.
Midwest Pesticide Action Center
I served two terms (2010-2013) as a Board member and as Secretary of the Board for this small non-profit that is dedicated to reducing the health risks and environmental impacts of pesticides by promoting safer alternatives. Learn more at MidwestPesticideAction.org.
Pro bono Web Service
I have designed and maintained websites for several small family businesses and non-profit organizations, as requested by friends, family members and random acquaintances.
