Edna’s strong belief in “possibilities” and not “disabilities” is what has driven her in her career and motivation to be part of the Easterseals board. Edna has been on the Easterseals for six years and currently serves as past chairwoman. Edna began her professional career as a speech pathologist for Lockport Area Special Education Cooperative and retired from her professional career after over 36 years as Director of Special Services for Joliet Township High School District 204. She has been part of the Joliet community all of her life. Edna is married to Saul, a retired Caterpillar Inc., manufacturing engineer manager. They are the parents of three adult daughters and sons-in-“love” and the grandparents of five. Edna is grateful to be able to give back to the community of “abled” individuals through Easterseals Joliet Region because Easter Seals is an organization that supports its consumers in being all that they can be reaching their full potential.
