The Lombard Junior Women's Club (LJWC) is run by women just like you, that have a passion for giving back to our community through service.  Each year, a new executive board and committee chairs are elected to ensure we are living out the LJWC mission.

Meet our 2024 Executive Board

Prior to joining the LJWC, she spent many years volunteering her summers at TLC Camp. In 2022, Cassie became Co-Director of TLC Camp and will be a Director again for camp in 2023. Cassie works for Streamwood Behavioral Healthcare Systems. She enjoys spending time with her husband and step daughter and venturing out to new places on the weekends.

Lindsey Young


Lindsey grew up in Lombard until a few years ago when she moved to Glendale Heights. She joined LJWC in 2017 with the invitation to join from her sisters and was drawn to all the club had to offer. Over the past few years, she has chaired Environment and Education, By-Laws and now most recently, Secretary. Lindsey is a Clinical Nurse Leader in the Neonatal ICU. In her spare time, she loves to read, work on puzzles, and spend time with her family and friends.
