“I have been a New Moms Board Member since 2022. After moving to the Chicago area with my family, including our 4-month-old son and 5-year-old daughter, I knew I wanted to be involved in an organization in Chicago that helps new mothers lacking the support and opportunities I am so lucky to have; New Moms was the perfect organization for me to help. Then, as I volunteered in the New Moms job training program and saw the women’s potential unleashed, I was inspired to become even more involved. New Moms provides its moms with all the resources and training they need to sustain their families for the long term. I am so excited to be joining the Board this year to further the New Moms mission.”
Fun Fact: Christy’s favorite children’s book is Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss. “I am still inspired by this book, as I always want to be taking on exciting challenges, learning new things, and keeping an open mind!”
