Lombard, IL – The Board of Directors of AgeGuide Northeastern Illinois has appointed Mary Kay Furiasse to the Agency’s Advisory Council as a DuPage County representative. Mary Kay will fill a vacant position and serve a three-year term.

Mary Kay has spent the majority of her career as an Elder Law attorney. She has had her own practice for 30 years which is located in Lisle. Prior to becoming an attorney, Mary Kay was a nurse.
