I am honored to return from retirement when asked by Girl Scouts of the USA to be your Interim Chief Executive Officer until January 31, 2018.  From my short time with you already, I am impressed with the enthusiasm and energy you bring to the Girl Scout Movement to help girls become the go-getters, innovators, risk-takers and leaders they were meant to be!

My professional background includes serving as a nonprofit executive with a 33 year career in professional Girl Scouting within five Girl Scout Councils.

My role here is to help the Council assess, move forward our mission and make a smooth transition for your new CEO.  I look forward to seeing an exciting and successful future for Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois!
