She worked for 30 years as a Dental Assistant and Administrative Assistant prior to volunteering for DuPage Senior Citizens Council at the Naperville Park District Nutrition Site. After retirement Madeline started her own business and is a certified Laughter Leader giving presentations.
In addition to starting her own business upon retirement Madeline applied to volunteer at many not for profits throughout DuPage. She not only volunteers for DSCC delivering meals to the homebound but has helped volunteer at her Church, Ronald Mc Donald House and the Northern Illinois Food Bank. When asked why she volunteers for DSCC she shared “DuPage Senior Citizens Council was the first organization to respond to my inquiry about volunteering and I was very excited to help people. I ask myself what is my purpose of this day? Delivering meals to the homebound is the light in my life every morning. Everyone has a purpose and my gift is to bring laughter to the seniors. They all have a story to tell and I am very happy to be there to hear it!”
