I have been involved with Face the Future for over 10 years. A close friend has been a board member, and I have attended several of the past fundraising events. In addition, my brother is a retired genetic counselor and does some work with University of Illinois Craniofacial Center.
Touring The Center was an eye-opening experience. Despite being in the healthcare industry, and learning and promoting new medical technology, I had never seen the true collaboration of art and science all in one site. Generally, centers of excellence are throughout a campus, but here,
they are all contained in one facility, making for a truly unique, collaborative environment among patients and the myriad of providers.
Brad is a retired healthcare administrator and elementary school educator, and he is currently a Supervisor at Ralph Lauren on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. While a healthcare administrator, Brad focused on finance and legal contract with various payors, physicians, and medical facilities. He worked with a hospital, a major insurer, and as a consultant with many physicians and medical facilities. Later, Brad became a National Board-Certified teacher and taught for 22 years in the Englewood and Cabrini neighborhoods in Chicago. He worked mainly with 4th grade and kindergarten students during those years and served on several educational boards during his tenure. At Ralph Lauren, Brad oversees the Children’s areas within the Chicago flagship, and is one of the top sales associates. Last fall, Brad collaborated with Ralph Lauren to hold a shopping event benefiting Face the Future.
Throughout his life, Brad and his family have been fortunate to provide funds, time, and resources to several organizations both in his hometown of Rockford, IL and beyond. Access and opportunity are the cornerstones of our interests. They support organizations that improve education and healthcare, as well as sports non-profits.
Brad currently moved back to the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, into a building where he lived before. During his free time, he swims competitively. (He is nationally ranked in his age group.) He also plays tennis and travels as much as possible. He looks forward, post COVID, to spending extended periods abroad.
