A Message from NAMI Illinois’ Executive Director

I’m writing to let you know that I resigned from my position as Executive Director of NAMI Illinois and my last day will be April 4th.

Thank you all so very much for the opportunities that you have provided me during my time at NAMI Illinois. The time and energy that all of you devote to NAMI is truly inspirational. I have deeply enjoyed working for the organization and am grateful for all the dedicated and kind people I’ve met through NAMI.

Although I have greatly valued the opportunity to work with you, I have accepted a position at the Alzheimer’s Association. Given my mother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, I’m extremely passionate about the organization and its mission.

The NAMI Illinois Board is meeting to discuss plans for my position, and will announce them when appropriate.

Thank you again for all you do for NAMI!
