Hello, my name is Kelsey Novak and I just joined the Give Something Back location in Lockport Illinois as the Manager of Mentor/Student Services. Prior to me starting with GSB, I worked as a financial aid counselor for the last 8 years at the University of St Francis in Joliet IL. My husband and I currently live just outside of Joliet, and 7 months ago we brought our first baby home! We are enjoying spending A LOT of family time together these last few weeks, and watching our son grow and learn new things every day.

My husband and I are huge sports fans, and we’re finding ourselves scanning YouTube for made up sports to watch. Sunday football (Bear Down) is a big production in our house, as well as hockey, and we’re a house divided between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. (Go Cubs Go!)

I’m very excited to start this new career with GSB, and I cannot wait to get into the office after April 30th and really hit the ground running with the Lockport team. I appreciate all the warm welcomes I have received thus far, and I know that this is the place I need to be to make a difference.

Be Well,

Kelsey Novak 

Welcome to the team, Kelsey!
