I was the Human Resources Manager for American Drug Stores Corporate office, from September 1996 to February 1999. I managed the Oak Brook office and the Franklin Park office, in Illinois.
I left my position to raise my twin daughters. They are fourteen, soon to be 15 years old.
I started volunteering in February 2005 for an organization in the Department of Defense. It is called Employer Support of Guard and Reserve, (E.S.G.R). I provide informal mediation for the military members and their employers. I also present awards to supportive employers who follow the requirements under the Department of Labor regulations. I conduct trainings for military members on what their responsibility is under the Uniformed Service Reemployment Rights Act (U.S.S.E.R.A). One of our volunteers is also a cousin of Oprah Winfrey!
I currently teach at a community college in Joliet IL. I have taught at the college for six years. I teach Career and Lifestyle Planning. The course is great for students who are unsure what major they want to pursue. I live in New Lenox, Illinois.
