About Anita

I grew up with a strong faith, a strong work ethic, and a heart for service. From an early age, I saw what real community looked like. Together with my family I attended and served in the local church and community activities. As a mother of small children, I coached softball for my daughter, organized and led after-prom parties and served on the school board for 11 years. When someone was in need, we all pitched in. These experiences taught me the value of leading a life with integrity, honesty, hard work, and sacrifice while helping/serving others.

As a single mom I raised three children, Chris (now married to KayLynn and father of two) who was just promoted to full bird Colonel in the US Air Force; Holly (married to James and mother of one), a Manager with Parsons Manufacturing in Roanoke; and Jeremy (married to Andrea and father of four), a Financial Advisor for Edward Jones in East Peoria. As great as my kids are, my favorite thing about them is they have given me 7 beautiful grandchildren, ages 2 to 14!! I am also blessed to have both my parents still with us, and they have been a huge support in this campaign and in my life.

I attended Illinois Community College and University of Phoenix. I began my career as an HR administrator at Nestle Food Company in Morton IL. Since that time, I have spent over 30 years in the Human Resources field. I served in many different capacities, Compensation and Benefits, Human Resource Manager and Labor Relations Manager, to consultant utilizing my Six Sigma Process Improvement skills. As a consultant, I traveled the world, implementing systems and advanced efficiency solutions that streamlined business processes and practices, eliminated waste, and saved money.

In 2015, I answered the call to become Peoria County’s first Process Improvement Specialist, a position created by the County Board to support their vision of an innovative approach to technology and process improvement. It is truly my passion to help people work smarter not harder and be able to provide the best service possible because of it.
