A Note from our Executive Director

Happy New Year! I am so honored and privileged to be serving as your next Executive Director.

I have been with Pearce for 12 1/2 years and started out as a volunteer in the pre-school programs which lead to creating and leading our Before/After School program, Summer Camp, P.O.W.E.R. Camp, etc… Soon after that, as the Programs Manager, I lead all adult and youth programs. In 2017 with the continued growth of Pearce, I became the first Operations Director where I lead the daily operations of the center.

As an Eastern Illinois University graduate, I began my career in Human Resources and prior to moving from the suburbs of Chicago to Chillicothe served as the Regional Human Resources Manager for the Midwest at Mohawk Industries. Upon my move to Chillicothe in 2005, I joined several volunteer organizations and was a part of the SMART Board campaign for IVC school district, President of the local PTA, and Vice Chairman for the IVC Educational Foundation.

Our team at Pearce will continue to carry on the vision, mission, and tradition of Pearce Community Center which is to ‘create a safe, fun experience for people to feel better’. Please stop by and visit with me the next time you are in the Center!

Executive Director
